Security Message for U.S. Citizens May 23, 2017

Consistent with our previous security messages and the State Department’s March 6 Worldwide Caution, the U.S. Embassy reminds U.S. citizens of the ongoing terrorism threat in India.  India continues to experience terrorist activities, increasing crime rates, and sporadic incidents of localized public unrest.  In the past, terrorists in India have targeted markets, religious sites, hotels, restaurants, and public transportation, including trains and buses.  U.S. citizens should expect heightened risks, security, and an increased police presence throughout India during public events, holidays, and national and religious celebrations.  We encourage all U.S. citizens to maintain a high level of vigilance and take appropriate steps to increase their security awareness.  For further information:
