Ancient Indian temple targeted for attack

By "unidentified caller." "Threats to blow up temple in Assam," from the Times of India, November 3:

MORIGAON: The priest of an ancient temple, Goranga, in central Assam's Morigaon district received three threat calls that the place of worship would be blown up by bombs, said a top district police official on Monday.

The priest of the Ram and Krishna temple near Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary received three calls on Sunday night from a mobile phone that Goranga would be blown up by bombing, district superintendent of police Madan Chetia told.

The identity of the caller was yet to be ascertained and the service provider of the mobile number, Airtel, has been asked to provide the details of the phone number's owner, Chetia said.

Meanwhile, security arrangements around the temple has been tightened in view of the threat calls, he added.

In view of the recent SMS to a private television news channel by Islamic Security Force-Indian Mujahideen claiming responsibility for the Thursday serial blasts in the state, the police was taking Sunday's threat calls with utmost seriousness, he said.

For all the anonymity of the caller, all things considered, you know the "I" word had to come up sooner or later.
