‘Sensitive items’ in car spread panic
Delhi was on 'high alert' on 13 May when the capital was celebrating 60 years of Indian Parliament. Sources revealed to Millennium Post that a PCR call was made from Badarpur area to warn the cops about a terrorist attack in the capital.

According to the PCR call, a tip-off was given by an unidentified person that a black Pajero carrying sensitive items and four passengers was about to enter Delhi. Based on the tip-off, the police officers were instructed to check every vehicle coming into Delhi. The police had barricaded several places. But the police had not yet apprehended the Pajero in question until late Sunday evening.

According to the sources Sunday was very important day for the nation not just because Indian Parliament was celebrating it's 60th year, but also because it fell on a 13th. The past records had established the role of the numeric 13. Parliament building, for instance, was attacked by the terrorists of Lashkar-e-Toiba and Jaish-e-Mohammed on 13 December 2001. This attack took away dozens of lives.

On 13 September 2008, Delhi was rocked by serial blasts. The attack killed 21 people and injured many. The blasts took place at Ghaffar market in Karol Bagh, at Connaught Place and Greater Kailash.

On 13 Feburary 2012, a car of Israeli Embassy was exploded resulting in injuries to four people that included Tal Yehoshua Koren, the wife of Israel Defence Attache.

On Sunday, 13 May, all crowded places, including street markets like Sarojini Nagar, Lajpat Nagar, Karol Bagh and Connaught Place were watched closely. Security was heightened in the high profile areas such as parliament, high court, supreme court and ITO. Police checks became mandatory in these areas. Monuments such as India gate, Red Fort and  Humayun Tomb, which on Sundays tend to gather a big crowd, were under high security.

'I am not the right person to speak to and I am not aware about it,' said Rajan Bhagat, Public Relation Officer of Delhi Police.
