On Sunday, police and National Security Guard personnel were mobilised on a massive scale in Gujarat in order to counter any possible terror attack on religious places during Mahashivratri.
Fears of an attack in Gujarat have been mounting over the last four months, sparked by the discovery of five abandoned fishing boats in Harami Nullah, a channel that snakes along the India-Pakistan border before emptying into the Vianbari Creek. The fifth boat was discovered by the Border Security Force (BSF) just last month.
