Intelligence agencies have sounded an alert against a Mangalore bound ship which would be coming in from the UAE via Pakistan. The IB has stated that terrorists could be on board this ship and could infiltrate into Mangalore from where they may try and launch a terror attack.
The Karnataka government has beefed up security along the coast and all eyes are on this ship which is expected to dock in the next couple of days. The coast guards have been directed to keep a watch on all the fishing ports such as Malpe and Bundar around Mangalore in the event of this threat.
Police sources however added that there has also been a threat alert after four terrorists in Mumbai managed to infiltrate. However they have denied any knowledge of these four Bangladesh based Lashkar e Taiyba militants gaining entry into Bangalore. The alert says that these persons will try and target Bangalore due to the BJP gpvernment and the fact that it is an IT hub. However our counterparts in Mumbai are still looking for these men and information is being shared on a regular basis, the police also added.
