India has declared a security alert at three major airports, including Delhi and Bangalore, a week after the Mumbai attacks.

Officials have also added extra checks to vehicles and luggage after warnings from intelligence agencies.

Local television showed armed police guarding entrances to Delhi’s international airport. Police cordons had also been set up outside the airport in the southern industrial city of Chennai.

The heightened security comes days after the militant rampage in Mumbai which killed more than 170 people.

Moushumi Chakravarty, a spokesperson for the Ministry of Civil Aviation, said: “More checking of passenger luggage of people coming to the airport, more thorough checking of vehicles coming to the airport.

“There are more security measures to control the airspace also. There are security personnel manning the perimeter of the airports.”

Indian television said the alert was issued after an email from Deccan Mujahideen, the same group that claimed responsibility for the Mumbai attacks. Officials said they did not have information about this.
