New Delhi: The Centre today said New Delhi, being the capital of the country and the seat of the central government, is always under the radar of terror groups, inimical to India's national security.

"Hence, there is a constant state of heightened alertness in Delhi, since the guard cannot be let down. However, there are no specific intelligence inputs about terror strike in Delhi," Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju informed Lok Sabha.

Rijiju said there are intelligence inputs that the Indian Mujahideen terror outfit receives shelter, training, weapons and financing in Pakistan.

"The government of India is addressing this issue through enforcements, intelligence and diplomatic means," he said in reply to a written question.
