"We have been going mall to mall and visiting crowded places, where private security guards are also being briefed.
We are telling them how they have to keep an eye to detect anything suspicious. We are also telling them whom they should contact in case of any emergency. We do not want to leave anything to chance," he said.
Gurugram, which lies adjoining the national capital, is home to many shopping malls while several top MNCs also have their offices in the city.
