June 30, 2020: Security has been tightened at and around Mumbai’s Taj Hotel after the authorities received a bomb threat call from Pakistan.

A caller from Pakistan has threatened a terrorist attack on the 5-star hotel. The call was reportedly made from a Pakistan number. According to the official sources, the call was received around 12 midnight on Monday. 

The caller allegedly identified himself as a member of the Lashkar-e-Taiba and said that the hotel would be attacked by their members. He said the Taj Mahal Palace and Taj Lands End hotels would also be blown up as it happened in November 2008.

The caller said that ''everyone saw the terrorist attack on the Karachi Stock Exchange, now the 26/11 attack in the Taj Hotel will happen once again.''

The second call was received by the staffers at the Taj Lands End hotel in Bandra. The caller threatened to blow up the hotel in a similar manner. Both the calls were received from the same numbers. Though the hotels remain shut for operation presently due to the coronavirus-induced lockdown, the Mumbai Police has beefed up the security around the hotels and all possible measures are being taken to secure the area.

The caller said that ''everyone saw the terrorist attack on the Karachi Stock Exchange, now the 26/11 attack in the Taj Hotel will happen once again.''
