As per the latest inputs received from the intelligence agencies southern parts of Indian territory are under a threat of terror attacks. A senior official from the Indian Army confirmed this fact and highlighted that abandoned boats have been found from the Sir Creek region of Gujarat.
This news comes at a time when ports in the state of Gujarat were put on high alert due to terror threat last week. The Intelligence agencies have pointed out that there is a possibility of inflation by Pakistani commandos from the Kutch region.
Series Of Alerts
The General Officer Commanding (Army Southern Command) S.K. Saini said that they have received multiple inputs in regards to the possibility of terror threat in Southern parts of India. The NIA (National Investigation Agency) also led an operation last month in Coimbatore on Islamic State sleeper cells involved in radicalizing and recruiting youths.
Security Beefed Up
Meanwhile, Police and state security agencies have come in action and have beefed up the security in their respective jurisdictions. An alert has been issued across districts of Kerala. Police is keeping a strong vigil on any sort of suspicious activity. Army is also taking capacity building and capacity development measures in the region to avoid any possibility of attacks.
The modus operandi of sea-based infiltration and attacks have become a common practice since the 26/11 attacks. In recent times when the tensions between India and Pakistan are on high as a result of the removal of Article 370 the possibility of such attacks becomes all the more high.
