In August, the Special Investigation Team (SIT), which was constituted by the Tamil Nadu government after the Intelligence issued a terror alert in Coimbatore, took into custody two suspects. The accused were detained for interrogation on suspicion of having links with an alleged Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) operative nabbed in Kerala two days before.
Recently, an alert was also issued about a possible terror attack on Indian Air Force's air bases in Gujarat. Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani had assured that the state government had been taking steps to thwart any possible terror attack in the state.
Last month, Indian Navy chief Admiral Karambir Singh during his media interaction also pointed out that Pakistan-based terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed is giving underwater training to its recruits to carry out an attack on India. Admiral Singh assured that the Indian Navy is fully prepared to tackle any threat.
