A high alert has already been sounded along the Maharashtra coast after the group of men were spotted moving suspiciously near a naval base at Uran in Raigad district, leading to multi-agency search operations by multiple agencies.

The alert comes four days after the terror attack in Uri in which 18 soldiers were killed.

Coastal security has been a top priority after the 26/11 attacks in Mumbai in which multiple locations in the city were targeted by Pakistani terrorists who landed using the sea route. The fishing town of Uran is located across the eastern water-front of the financial capital.
