Pune: Pakistan is training the militants it hosts to carry out terror attacks by an “underwater wing” of the Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM), according to intelligence inputs. But the Indian Navy is fully prepared to fail any such attempt of the JeM, Admiral Karambir Singh, Chief of Naval Staff said on Monday.

All stakeholders in coastal security, Admiral Singh said, were ensuring that there was no intrusion from the sea. “We have received intelligence (input) that an underwater wing of Jaish-e-Mohammed is training people to carry out attacks from water and that is one change. But we are fully prepared and will thwart any such attempt,” he added.

Admiral Singh, while answering a query on the Indian Navy’s response to the changing form of terror, said that vigilance along the country’s coasts has been heightened. He said that the overall charge of maritime security has been on the Navy since the deadly 26/11 sea-borne terror attacks (2008) on Mumbai.

“The Indian Navy, maritime police, state governments and other stakeholders are making sure there is no intrusion from the sea,” the Navy chief stated, speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a lecture, titled “Indian Ocean: Changing Dynamic — Maritime Security Imperatives for India”. The lecture is part of a series held in the memory of the late Army Chief General BC Joshi.

Sirf News had on 24 August reported that the Indian Navy had sounded a high-alert at sea in view of intelligence inputs that six members of the Lashkar-e-Taiba had intruded into Tamil Nadu, as strict surveillance continued in various parts of the state for the second day on Saturday.

“In view of the intelligence inputs, the Indian Navy continues to maintain its high alert situation at seas and in coastal areas,” a defence spokesman had said in Kochi, Kerala.

Security was tightened in Tamil Nadu on Friday following reports that six members of the terror outfit LeT had infiltrated the state by sea from Sri Lanka and moved to different cities.
