Naveen's security beefed up after threat mail

Bhubaneswar, Mar 28 (PTI) Security has been beefed up in and around Naveen Patnaik's residence and other vital places here following a threat e-mail purportedly sent by Maoists to the chief minister's office.

"Police are investigating into the matter. I am sure they will come up with success," Patnaik told reporters today on the sideline of a meeting held at a hotel here.

The security of the chief minister, who is covered under the 'Z plus' category, was enhanced in view of yesterday's e-mail purportedly sent by Central Military Commission of Peoples Liberation Guerilla Army, a Maoist outfit, threatening to blow up his residence Naveen Niwas, official sources said.

Personnel of special security battalion have been deployed in and around Naveen Niwas. Personnel from the elite anti-naxalite force and special operation group have been posted at the state secretariat and other places Patnaik usually visits, the sources said.
