Inputs about likely terror attack in south India: Army

PUNE/THIRUVANANTHAPURAM/AMARAVATI: The Army has received inputs that there may be a terror attack in the southern part of India, a top Army commander said on Monday.

Some abandoned boats have been recovered in the Sir Creek area, Lt Gen S K Saini, GOC-in-C of the Army's Southern Command, told reporters at an event near Pune.

The Army has taken measures in the Sir Creek region, keeping in mind the enhanced threat perception, he said.

Kerala police chief Lokanath Behera, meanwhile, asked all district police heads to maintain high alert across the state.

A defence spokesperson in Chennai said the "northernmost point of the Army's southern command includes some parts of Gujarat also."

In Andhra Pradesh, security along the 974-km long coastline has been beefed up following threats of a possible terror attack in south India, a top police official said.
