The airport manager on duty late last night received a call that the airport and the Taj Hotel outside the airport may be attacked.

Described as a 'specific threat', the agencies concerned beefed up security at these locations. The incident comes on the eve of the quantum of sentencing for the 12 convicted for the 7/11 Mumbai serial train blasts, scheduled to be pronounced on Wednesday.

Officials at Taj Hotel, near Gateway of India in South Mumbai - which was one of the prime targets during the 26/11 terror attacks - were not available for their reactions.
