'Terror in Pakistan may spill over to India'

Saturday 31st October, 2009 (IANS)

Bangalore/The spate of terror strikes and the resultant turmoil in Pakistan may spill over to India, top central government and army officials said Saturday.

'I think we can expect some of the terror strikes in Pakistan to spill over to India. As Pakistan is in turmoil, we have to be vigilant and fully prepared to thwart any attack on us,' union Home Secretary G.K. Pillai said in Banglaore during an interaction with the alumni of Bishop Cotton Boys School, where he was a student in the early 1960s.

Delivering the fifth General K.S. Thimayya Memorial Lecture on 'India's Internal Security: Challenges and Responses', Pillai said since the terror strike in Mumbai Nov 26 last year, the country was slightly better prepared to face any attack with a vastly improved intelligence network.
