Mumbai: The traffic helpline of Mumbai Police has received a WhatsApp message from an international number advising the force to take care to avoid a ”Somalia-type attack” in India, an official said on Friday.


Last week the traffic helpline number had received several messages threatening of another ”26/11-like” attack in the city. The latest message did not issue any threat but police are investigating its source, the official said.

Terror group Al-Shabaab recently attacked the Hayat Hotel in Mogadishu, Somalia’s capital. The message, though, did not make it clear which incident in the African country it was referring to.
