AHMEDABAD : The security in the state of Gujarat has been tightened, especially along the coast, following a note by national security adviser Ajit Doval about a possible infiltration attempt by eight-ten militants through the land or the sea border with Pakistan, reports The Hindustan Times. The alert was notified in Kutch district which shares a land and sea border with Pakistan.
Two NSG teams have been rushed to Gujarat and been put on standby after high-level alert sounded in the state.
Yesterday, a Pakistani boat was seized by Border Security Force or BSF personnel in the Koteshwar creek area off the Kutch coast along the Indo-Pakistan border.
But BSF officials had said its occupants fled upon seeing the security personnel and nothing suspicious was found in the boat.
A top army commander had yesterday said there were "disturbing inputs" about a possible terror attack in the country aimed at creating "maximum impact" during the Shivratri festival and the ongoing Parliament session.
"There are security-related problems today. You know, Maha Shivratri is coming. There are inputs which are disturbing but notwithstanding that extra care has been taken," Western Army Commander Lt Gen KJ Singh had said, without giving any further details about the inputs.
