Terrorist attack on CWG foiled

Al Qaeda and Lashkar-e-Taiba terroristsd had planned to attack some venues of the just-concluded Commonwealth Games on October 12 and 13, and the Union Government put in place a four-layer security arrangement in the last three days of the games.

Hundreds of cyber attacks were carried out in an attempt to destroy the highly-secured security structure put in place by India to penetrate the computerised system and servers during the Games fortnight.

A Western intelligence agency had tipped off the Indian government on October 10 that al Qaeda and LeT militants, trained along the Afghan-Pakistan borders, would try to attack a few venues and a hotel.
