A high security alert has been sounded in Gujarat after intelligence agencies shared inputs about the possibility of Pakistan-trained commandos entering the Gulf of Kutch in Gujarat from the Harami Nala creek area.
The Border Security Force (BSF) found two single-engine Pakistani boats abandoned in the ‘Harami Nala’ area and a search operation had been launched, a BSF spokesperson said.
Fearing “underwater attacks,” by Pakistani commandos, security is up at all major ports such as the Kandla Port and the Adani Port in Mundra and other infrastructures.
The ports have directed shipping agents to inform their vessels and maintain a watch and report any suspicious activity to the Coast Guard, marine police stations or port control rooms.
In an alert, the authorities of the Deendayal Port Trust in Kandla directed the adoption of strict security measures.
A similar advisory has been issued by the Adani Port management. It said, “All shopping agents and stakeholders are directed to inform their vessels accordingly and report any suspicious activity to the marine control station and port operation centre immediately. Please note that Mundra Port is maintaining security level 1. Security measures have also been enhanced at the shore side of the port.”
