Following explosions in Mumbai on July 13, 2011, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) has issued an advice against all travel to specific regions of India.
The British Government department mentioned that throughout India, there is a high threat of terrorism and therefore has urged British nationals to exercise extra caution while visiting the places.
The Wednesday attack on Mumbai left around 21 dead and over 141 injured. There were a total of three low intensity explosions that went off at Zaveri Bazaar, Opera House and Kabutar Khana in Dadar.
Two of the bombs were planted in a motorcycle while the third one was placed under an umbrella by the roadside.
Condemning the deplorable acts of terrorism, Foreign Secretary William Hague stated that the UK will continue to extend its support with the Indian government.
A Foreign Office consular team is already in Mumbai to provide consular support to any British nationals who may have been caught up in these events, and the Foreign Office is in close contact with the Indian authorities, informed Hague.
India's Home Ministry also placed the city on high alert an hour after the series of attacks, which occurred within ten minutes of each other from 6:50 to 7:00 p.m. local time.
