NEW DELHI: In the aftermath of a terrorist incident in Central London Saturday night, where six people were killed and three attackers shot dead by police, security has been beefed up for the Champions Trophy match featuring India and Pakistan on Sunday. Speculations are rife that the United Kingdon intelligence have been alerted about a possible attack during the match in Edgbaston, despite the venue being a good 208 km away from the sight of incident.
Cricket boards of both countries – BCCI and PCB have been duly informed and asked to remain panic free by the UK intelligence. This is the second time in less that two weeks that London has been a victim due to a terrorist act following the suicide bombing during a concert in Manchester on May 22 where 23 people lost their lives. A source close to the BCCI assured that there was nothing to worry as the secuity for the match has been covered from all bases.
