Pakistan based trained terrorists are planning attacks via high seas. Indian Naval Chief Admiral Sunil Lanba warned on Tuesday.
“We also have reports of terrorists being trained to carry out attacks with varying modus operandi including through the medium of sea,” the Navy Chief said during an event held in Delhi.
India faces a far more serious version of terrorism called State sponsored terrorism, said the Naval Chief, while slamming the neighbouring country.
“You all have witnessed the horrific scale of the extremist attack in Jammu and Kashmir just three weeks ago. The violence was perpetrated by extremists aided and abetted by a state which seeks to destabilise India,” he said.
The government implemented Coastal Security Scheme in phases since 2005. The objective of the scheme is to strengthen the capacity and infrastructure of Police Force of the coastal states and Union Territory for patrolling and surveillance of coastal areas.
After 26/11 attack, India has increased its security along the coastline.
Speaking in the Parliament, Minister of State for Home Affairs Hansraj Ahir said in January, “Available inputs indicate that the Pakistan based terrorist groups continue to train their cadres for underwater strike capabilities in a bid to infiltrate them into India by sea or water ways.”
