Security arrangements around the residence of Orissa Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik and other government buildings in Bhubaneswar have been stepped up following receipt of an e-mail threat by Patnaik’s office on Saturday.

Personnel of special security battalion have been deployed in and around Naveen Niwas. Personnel from the elite anti-naxalite force and special operation group have been posted at the state secretariat and other places Patnaik usually visits, the reports added.
