Kerala coast on alert, fishermen asked to watch out for terrorists and submarines

Tension has been running high between India and Pakistan after India conducted air strikes on terrorist camps in Pakistan in retaliation to the Pulwama attack.

As Pakistan is desperate to attack India following the terror strikes against Jaish camps in Balakot, the Indian security apparatus has been on high alert to avert any terror attacks. To augment the existing alertness, the Kerala Fisheries Department has also asked the fishermen to watch out for ‘submarines’ and to ‘report any kind of suspicious activities duly to the agencies concerned’, reports the New Indian Express.

Reportedly, the state government has issued an advisory after receiving intelligence inputs that the terrorists might choose the sea-route for retaliation. The state government has also asked to keep vigil on any suspicious movement in the coastal areas. “It was based on the alert provided by agencies concerned that we issued an alert of this kind,” said S Mahesh, Fisheries Deputy Director (Ernakulam).

The report, citing sources in the Indian Navy, says that the alert issued is a general kind for strengthening the coastal security mechanism and is meant for the Kadalora Jagratha Samithis, Indian Coast Guard, Kerala Coastal Police, Marine Enforcement Department, and Fisheries Department.

Amidst growing tensions between India and Pakistan, Indian Armed Forces appear to be battle-ready for any escalation or attempts by the Pakistani establishment to inflict terror on Indian soil. Just yesterday, the Indian Army successfully conducted live drills of Anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) indicating the preparedness of the Indian Armed Forces to face any eventualities.

India had carried out ‘non-military pre-emptive strikes’ against the biggest training camp of JeM in Balakot. In the operation, a very large number of JeM terrorists, trainers, senior commanders and groups of jihadis who were being trained for suicide attacks were eliminated.

Following the airstrikes, Pakistan had attempted to attack Indian military establishments before Indian airforce intercepted to thwart their attacks. India had lost one MiG-21 Bison after it shot down one of Pakistan’s F-16. There have also been continuous ceasefire violations by Pakistan along the line of control in Jammu region.
