India on alert against possible terror attacks from sea

The Indian Navy and the Coast Guard, defending the country’s 7,517 kilometres long coastline, have been put on alert against attacks on ports, cargo ships and oil tankers by Pakistan-based terrorist group Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), which has been building its sea strike capabilities since June this year, Pakistan watchers and counter-terrorism officials in India said on condition of anonymity.

Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM), another Pakistan-based Islamist terror group targeting India, has also started a rigorous training programme that involves swimming and deep diving techniques, according to these officials.

According to the officials, it first came to light during the interrogation of 26/11 accused David Coleman Headley by the National Investigation Agency in 2010 with the jihadist naming a certain Yaqoob as head of the terror group’s marine wing; he also added that the 10 gunmen involved in the Mumbai terror attack on 26/11 were trained by Pakistan Navy deep sea divers or frogmen.
