Mumbai: Indian Navy has put all its bases and warships on high alert.

These measures are being taken in the wake of article 370 being revoked by the Indian government depriving J&K of its special status.

The government of India is being cautious due to a possibility of Pakistan-backed terrorists carrying out any attack, news agency ANI reported.

HT reported the officials saying that they are on a state of heightened alert on eastern and western seaboards.

Moreover, officials are keeping a watch at critical points and surveillance through radars along the coast.

Lately, movement of terror groups like Rauf Azghar, brother of terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed Masood Azhar to PoK has been reported by the Indian intelligence.
