According to intel reports received by India’s Border Security Force (BSF), at least 50 Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorists are undergoing deep-sea diving to launch attacks against India through the sea. The underwater wing of these terrorists is going under extensive training and intel reports suggest that Southern states of India could be a prime target.
Ever since tensions have escalated between India and Pakistan over Kashmir, there have been several reports of possibilities of militant attacks. The Indian Navy is already at heightened alert after various intel reports warned of sea-borne attacks on key Indian cities
Abandoned boats spotted
According to Indian army officials, some abandoned boats have been spotted in the Sir Creek area which further raises the suspicion of the security forces. Sir Creek is the maritime estuary between India and Pakistan and segregates Gujarat from Sindh.
Earlier too there reports of sea-borne attacks being planned against India on lines of the gruesome 26/11 attacks that jittered the heart of Mumbai. Even state police of the southern states have issued alerts in a response to the intelligence reports which speak for the plausibility of attacks in the region.
The Indian Navy chief earlier assured that all stakeholders that they will ensure that any attempts by Pakistan based terror groups will be crushed.
