Kerala has been put on a high alert after intelligence reports from army about a possible terrorist attack in Southern part of India.
State police Chief Loknath Behera has asked all district police chiefs across Kerala to maintain alert at critical locations such as public places, bus stations, railway stations, airports etc.
Behera said, "An alert has been issued to all districts of the state, following Army's warning of a terror attack. Police across the state have been directed to maintain vigil at public places."
Southern Army Commander Lieutenant General SK Saini said to the media yesterday," We have got many inputs that there may be a terrorist attack in Southern part of India and peninsular India. Some abandoned boats have also been recovered in Sir Creek. We have undertaken measures for capacity building and capability development in the region, keeping in mind the enhanced threat perception. We are taking precautions to ensure that the designs of inimical elements or the terrorists are thwarted."
For the past few weeks the coastal area across Gujarat and Rajasthan border has also been put on high alert after some abandoned Pakistani boats were recovered in the region. The army had also shared intelligence that the Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terror group was training terrorists in underwater attacks.
