“Security forces have launched a major combing operation to track down the militants who may have entered Gujarat through searoute from Pakistan. A team of elite National Security Guard commandoes has also reached the state to avert any kind of any Mumbai-style terror attack,” they added.

The terror alert was issued after a Pakistani boat was seized by the Indian border guards in the Koteshwar creek area off the Kutch coast in Gujarat along the India-Pakistan border. However, all the occupants of the boat managed to flee.

In November 2008, 10 Pakistani militants entered Mumbai through a sea route and carried out a series of 12 coordinated shooting and bombing attacks lasting four days. At least 170 people were killed and over 300 others injured in the massacre. Enditem
