The strength of security forces was augmented in vital installations like Raj Bhavan, Civil Secretariat, Assembly House and vehicles entering the state capital from other places were being checked, SP, police Control, Harkumar Debbarma said. Some temporary check posts were also been built in all the district headquarters including the capital city here. All police stations in Tripura were put on maximum alert and BSF was alerted so that no insurgent could cross over the border from their hideout in Bangladesh.
