NEW DELHI: In the wake of the alert across Gujarat and the national capital following intelligence inputs of terrorists having sneaked into the state from Pakistan, Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Monday will chair a high-level meeting on internal security in Delhi.

Intelligence Bureau (IB) and the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) officials will also be present for the meeting besides senior Home Ministry officials. 

Meanwhile, four National Security Guard teams have been deployed in Gujarat in which three teams have been sent to Ahmedabad and one in Somnath where devotees are gathering for Shivratri celebrations.

"We got the input yesterday after which all the police across Gujarat was alerted. There are continuous combing operations and several check posts have been set up. We are searching for suspects involved in different activities and every possible protective measure is being taken," Gujarat Director General of Police PC Thakur told the media here.

In Gujarat, this is a second major alert about a possible terror strike in the state, which shares land and sea border with Pakistan.

Pakistan's National Security Advisor (NSA) Naseer Khan Janjua informed his Indian counterpart Ajit Doval about a group of fidayeen from the Lashkar-E-Taiba and Jaish-e Muhammed cadres on a mission to a major terror strike in the state.
