"A police team visited the RSS office in Jhandewalan here and sensitised functionaries about the security aspects following the Punjab incident," DCP (Central) of Delhi Police Paramditya said on Sunday.

Senior RSS leader Brig (retd) Jagdish Gagneja was yesterday shot at by some bike-borne persons at Jyoti Chowk area in Jalandhar. His condition was stated to be critical.

Police presence at the Delhi RSS office, which is guarded by paramilitary CISF, has been increased, Paramditya said.

Security personnel have been instructed to properly screen and search the visitors before allowing them into the Jhandewalan office. RSS office bearers have been asked to be cautious and alert.
