However our assurances could not allay their apprehensions about their safety. Hence, we request you to implement some effective measures to assure them about their safety. We would request the Maharashtra police to strengthen security measures at Bus stands, market places, Railway stations, student hostels and campuses. We also assure you of our whole hearted co-operation, if required, in implementing such measures.
