Kolkata, 6 March : The gruesome terrorist attack on Mumbai city in November 2008 has made the people of India extremely concerned over the growing threat of terrorists infiltrating into the country through sea routes and unleashing terror on its soil.
India’s vast coast line has already become vulnerable to illegal infiltration, smuggling of arms and ammunition from neighbouring countries. The intelligence agencies have now reported that nearly 1,200 uninhabited islands in the Indian seas pose a major security threat as the terrorist organistaions like Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) are planning to make these islands as their new base to launch terrorist attacks against India.
Pakistan’s intelligence agency the ISI in collusion with Pak based terrorist outfits is desperately looking for an opportunity to expand its terror network by starting operational bases in these islands. The JeM has planned to train its cadres in deep-sea diving and impart them skills required to sail in deep sea.
The Bengal Newz team strongly believes that the security of these uninhabited islands is vital for the larger national security network and no stone should be left unturned to ensure the security of these islands.
