After an intelligence input on suspected movement of terrorists, security agencies issued a red alert across Gujarat on Saturday. The input stated that around 10 terrorists were suspected to have infiltrated from across the border into Gujarat. This comes after three Pakistani boats were found on the shores in Kutch district. The BSF found the third abandoned boat late on Friday.

Sources in security agencies said there was information of 10 terrorists entering Gujarat. A top police officer said limited information had been received from the agencies, stating “terrorists have entered Gujarat and this is serious”. He, however, said there was no specific information about their location. He said in view of the attack in Pathankot, state police has been asked to remain alert.

          Is it another fake encounter in the making? The RSS/BJP are desperate to divert the narrative that is taking place all across India - the narrative Rohit Vemula and Kanhaiya kumar have embarked upon - azadi from hunger, azadi from caste, azadi from corruption, azadi from RSS, azadi from manuvad.

              I find few comments, which says it is a fake propaa, for election millage. Some say it is for creating fear, I am not denying anything but as a guy from past security experience, I will say not to take things lightly. People in Gujrat or to say any place in India, avoid crowded place and think in the lines of terrorist, which place they will choose avoid them. Secondly if you are at a wrong place at a wrong time then make sure get as low as possible make yourself hard target. I may sound paranoid, but nothing wrong in being safe. Jai hind.
