Security arrangements have been increased in Bihar's Nalanda district following threats by Naxals to blow up four police stations.
Superintendent of Police Amit Kumar said on Thursday that four police stations of different districts were on the hit list of the Naxalites and they had recently threatened to blow up Hilsa, Islampur, Telhara and Karaiparshurai police stations.

Kumar said that security arrangements of these police stations had been beefed up following the threats and other police stations of the district had been put on maximum alert.

He said that the Naxals had intensified their activities in Gaya, Jehanabad and Patna districts in the recent past and hence their threats to adjoining districts had also increased.

Last year on August 11, the activists had attacked the Chabilapur police station of the district and after killing two constables had looted the police armoury, the SP said.
