Pakistan terror threat to Sriharikota.
Chennai: The CISF has beefed up its vigil of the Indian space centre, located in Sriharikota on the TN-Andhra Pradesh border, based on the Central alert that militants from Pakistan may travel throgh Lanka and launch an attack on vital installations on the TN coast, including the ports, from the sea.
“There is a threat from the sea to the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota and three major ports, including Chennai port, in TN. We have increased our vigil, doubling the shifts, we function with limited staff,” a senior CISF official said.
The CISF has also been asked to safeguard all the vessels, harboured in ports like Chennai, Ennore and Thoothukudi, from possible attacks, the official added.
The Intelligence Bureau had been issuing a series of alerts on Pak-trained militants trying to infiltrate the TN coast to unleash terror in the state. The state police, along with the Coast Guard and Navy, has already started 24-hour patrolling of the sea after the alerts from Delhi started coming last week.
“The alert indicated that the Pak militants may use Myladuthurai as a possible drop zone after travelling from Lanka via the sea. We have been receiving alerts on Madurai for the last six years, but nothing happened so far. Now the Central agency is saying that Pak militants may reach Myladuthurai by boat from Lanka,” a police officer noted.
