FOLLOWING Monday's car blast outside the Israeli embassy in New Delhi in which four persons, including an Israeli diplomat, were injured, Mumbai was on a high alert with the police stepping up security at Israeli institutions across the city.
Police presence outside the Israeli consulate and various synagogues in the city was bolstered and patrolling was increased.
Senior officers of the Mumbai Police revealed that all personnel posted outside such sites have been asked to be on high alert. DCP (Detection) Nisar Tamboli, the spokesperson for the Mumbai Police, said it was a precautionary measure.
"All vital Israeli institutions in the city are already under security cover. We have just told our officers deployed outside such institutions to remain vigilant at all times and to keep an eye out for anything suspicious," he said.
Tamboli said the security cover near synagogues has also been increased. "We have told our men to be on guard near synagogues and the Israeli Consulate. We do not wish to take any chance and the situation is being monitored."
Following a Centre directive, the police have also started checking every vehicle and person visiting the diplomatic missions.
