The Mumbai Police today issued an alert about a possible terrorist attack in the metropolis during the Christmas-New Year festivities, saying that it had information that four Lashkar-e-Toiba operatives had crept into the city.

Joint Commissioner of Police Himanshu Roy told a press conference here this evening that the four had been identified as Abdul Karim Musa, Noor Abu Ilahi, Walid Jinnah and Mehfooz Alam.

He said all of them were in their 20s but their nationalities had not been established. He released to the media a sketch of one of them, Walid Jinnah.

He said the information received by the police suggested the men planned to carry out a major violent attack in the city and urged the people of the city to remain vigilant. He also urged anyone who had any information about their whereabouts or noticed anything suspicious to call the police at 100 or 22633333.

"They have come over to the city recently. Our information is fairly specific," he said.

Mr Roy said the police were taking elaborate precautions in the city by, among other things, stepping up deployment at places of worship and other places where people gather in large numbers.

Mr Roy recalled that he had issued a similar alert ahead of the Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations and felt that it had helped to prevent any major incident during that festival.

JetLite to have code-share pact with Jet Airways

in

Mumbai, Jan 19: JetLite, the all-economy subsidiary of Jet Airways, will add its extensive domestic network to its parent's global route network via code-share between the two carriers effective today.

With this pact, to be implemented in two phases, JetLite's domestic network will be available for sale under the Jet Airways' code (9W) for tickets purchased in all international points across the globe, a spokesperson for the private sector Jet Airways said.

The partnership will enable both carriers to boost online connectivity with a higher presence on global GDS screens, fully leveraging the power of global distribution networks. This process was initiated with the migration of JetLite to Jet Airways' reservations platform in September 2008, she explained.

Overseas passengers travelling to India will enjoy lower fares, through check-in and baggage check-in facilities and frequent flyer benefits, in addition to seamless connectivity between both carriers, across India and several international destinations in North America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

According to Mr. Wolfgang Prock-Schauer, CEO, Jet Airways, "With the code-share agreement between Jet Airways and JetLite, passengers will enjoy unbeatable connectivity between India and several international destinations, besides lower fares and several other benefits, in addition to the higher revenues, enhanced online connectivity and resultant synergistic benefits that both carriers would consequently accrue."

JetLite, the erstwhile Sahara Airways, was acquired by Jet Airways in April, 2007. It currently operates a fleet of 24 aircraft and flies to 26 domestic destinations and 2 international destinations (Kathmandu and Colombo).

Jet Airways currently operates a fleet of 87 aircraft, and has flights to 63 destinations in India and abroad. Its foreign destinations include

New York (both JFK and Newark), Toronto, Brussels, London (Heathrow), Hong Kong, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Colombo, Bangkok, Kathmandu, Dhaka, Kuwait, Bahrain, Muscat, Doha, Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
