Earlier the intelligence agencies had received inputs that Pakistani commandos were likely to infiltrate into Indian waters through the Kutch area and use the sea route to try and incite communal trouble or carry out a terror attack in Gujarat following which ports in Gujarat were put on high alert.
“We have got many inputs that there may be a terrorist attack in the southern part of India and peninsular India. There have been some abandoned boats also which have been recovered in the area of Sir Creek,” SK Saini, General Officer Commanding (GOC), Southern Command, said to ANI.
“We have undertaken measures for capacity building and capability development in the area of Sir Creek keeping in mind the enhanced threat,” he added.
Tension between India and Pakistan escalated after Article 370 was revoked last month and the state was bifurcated into two Union territories. After India’s move, Pakistan downgraded trade ties with India and expelled the envoy. While India called the move its internal matter, Pakistan is continuing their provocations.
