Terror threat: Coast Guard enhances sea surveillance
The Indian Coast Guard has enhanced surveillance along the West coast, more specifically in the seas off Gujarat, following inputs that 10 suspected LeT and JeM terrorists could have entered India from Pakistan to launch an attack. “We have enhanced our air and sea surveillance following the security threat. Our surveillance is always 24x7, but since the input has come directly from the NSA, we are more cautious,” said a senior Coast Guard official.
The Coast Guard has not only pressed more ships into the sea for surveillance, but also increased the sorties of its planes for aerial vigil.
Ten Pakistani terrorists involved in 26/11 Mumbai attack had landed from Karachi via sea.
