Himachal Pradesh police have enhanced security for Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur, BJP national president J P Nadda and union minister for I & B Anurag Thakur in view of Khalistani activist’s threatening calls to over two dozen Shimla journalists .

Director General of police sanjay Kundu said all possible steps were being taken. Central intelligence agencies have also been informed. There will be strict checking of all vehicles at entry points of the state.
