Security around the “vulnerable” Sir Creek strip off the Gujarat coast was discussed at a review meeting chaired by the cabinet secretary on Tuesday. Sources said the Ministry of Home Affairs had been asked to expedite the procurement of four “fast watercraft boats” to secure this particular coastline better.
Security around Sir Creek has been the focus area of the security agencies after the 26/11 Mumbai attacks when a group of 10 terrorists entered Indian territory through the particular sea route.
Cabinet Secretary Ajit Seth reviewed the pace of development and construction of vital roads along the Gujarat coast after it was found that only “40 per cent” of the planned projects had been completed even six years after the Mumbai attacks.
