Adequate security provided to Modi: Shinde

New Delhi, Oct 28 (IANS) A day after multiple blasts in Patna ahead of Narendra Modi's rally there, union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde Monday said adequate security has been provided to BJP's prime ministerial candidate.

"Centre has provided adequate security to the Gujarat chief minister," Shinde told reporters here.

Modi has been accorded Z-plus security with round-the-clock protection by elite National Security Guard commandos.

Shinde also said that he would visit Patna on Tuesday to asses the situation there following the serial blasts in the city Sunday.

"I will review the situation in Patna tomorrow. It is premature to say anything about the blasts now as investigation is still going on," he said.

The toll in the serial blasts in the Bihar capital went up to six following the death of a bomber who was seriously injured in an explosion while setting up a bomb.
