The home ministry has asked all states to review security after the Paris terror attacks in which 129 people were killed on Friday fearing that ISIS might target India.
"Though ISIS/ISIL has not been able to establish any significant presence in India, its success in radicalizing some youth, attracting certain sections of the local population/Indian diaspora to physically participate in its activities or the possibility of piggy backing on terrorist groups operating in India have opened up the possibility of ISIS-sponsored terrorist action on Indian territory," said the ministry in an advisory.
"Now stricter methods will be adopted to handle sympathisers of Isis,' Minister of State for Home, Kiren Rijiju, indicating a tougher stand on Islamic State sympathisers. Cases can now be registered against them instead of their being let off with a warning or counselling.
All foreign missions, tourist spots, Chabad Houses and community facilities visited by foreigners will now get special security arrangements, the home ministry advisory said.
"Security arrangements for the diplomatic interest of France, USA, UK, Germany, Russia, Australia, Turkey and Israel may be particularly reviewed and strengthened," the home ministry said, according to an NDTV report.
