A high alert has been sounded in Mumbai and its suburban areas following a tip-off from the Coast Guard that three suspected Islamic State militants are likely to sneak into the city through sea route.
The Mumbai Police had received intelligence message that terrorists may use train to infilterate after the security has been stepped up in the state capital.
The police are also checking lodges and low-end hotels, where owners generally don’t ask for an identity proof.
The city has been on the target of terrorist groups like the ISIS, another name of the group and LeT and has witnessed several bomb blasts and brazen terrorist attacks including the 26/11 carnage.
