The Indian Coast Guard has sounded a high alert for Mumbai ahead of Independence Day and urged police to illuminate the coast to intercept any suspicious movements, following inputs of a possible terrorist attack. The Port Zone DCP has asked police stations with coastal jurisdictions to place armed policemen on night patrols and install bright lights at 70 landing spots.
Coast Guard sources said that security around the city’s eastern and western coasts is usually intensified in the run-up to Independence Day. “Given the tense situation prevailing in the country at present the threat perception of an attack has increased,” an official said.
