Hyderabad, Nov 30: Security has been beefed up in Hyderabad following reports of possible Taliban attacks to avenge Ajmal Kasab's execution. However, police officials on Friday, Nov 30 informed that they have not received any intelligence inputs of a suspected terror attack in the city.

Anurag Sharma, the Police Commissioner, said that the police have taken all precautions to shield the city from any kind of attacks. Mr Sharma said, "We are alerting our forces and will intensify patrolling as a part of precautionary measures."

The commissioner also informed, "We have not got any such report from any intelligence agency. However, we remain alert to any such threat."
