India has beefed up security along its international border with Pakistan after intelligence agencies indicated that Lashkar-e-Taiba militants could try to infiltrate through the area, ahead of US President Barack Obama's visit.
IBNLive quoted sources as saying that a second line of security has been enforced with 10 additional companies of Border Security Force being deployed along the border.
Obama will be in New Delhi on a three-day visit from 25-27 January. He is due to be the chief guest at the Republic Day parade to be held on 26th January, the first American president to do so.
Meanwhile, the US has also warned Pakistan to ensure that there are no cross-border terror attacks during Obama's India visit.
The US has subtly warned Pakistan of "consequences" if any such attack takes place and is traced back to the country, NDTV reported.
Indian and US intelligence agencies are working together to ensure a high level of security during India's 67th Republic Day celebrations.
More than 10,000 paramilitary personnel from India will be deployed along with around 80,000 Delhi Police officials to ensure fool-proof security in and around Rajpath, the venue of the main event.
There will also be a seven-layer security ring around the VVIP enclosure at the venue, and the airspace over the area will be closely monitored.
