NEW DELHI: Security across Gujarat has been beefed up after Intelligence Bureau's alert about 10 terrorists sneaking into the state. According to India today report, National Security Adviser Ajit Doval has informed the India province Gujarat government that around 10 terrorists may have entered the state from across the border to target major installations.

 According to IB officials, nearly 8-10 Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists have possibly infiltrated into the state from the Kutch area. Two NSG teams have been rushed to Gujarat and put on standby following intelligence inputs.

 The state police has heightened security at Somnath temple, Dwarka temple, Akshardham temple, airports and railway stations across Gujarat in view of the terror threat. Special security arrangement has been put in place at Somnath temple, where thousands of devotees are expected on Monday on the occasion of Shivratri.

 Following the alert, the Director General of Police of Gujarat PC Thakur cancelled the leave of all police officials and ordered them to resume duty immediately.

 The terror warning comes after a BSF team located three abandoned boats on the shores in the Kutch district on Friday.

 On Saturday, a man was arrested after he was found taking photographs of the Bhuj Army base in Gujarat. He was arrested when the security officials found that he was clicking photographs of sensitive locations inside the army base with his mobile phone.

 Separately, in Pathankot, Western Army Commander Lieutenant General KJ Singh told reporters that there are inputs that terrorists may try to create disturbance during Shivratri celebrations.

 "There are security-related problems today. You know, Maha Shivratri is coming. There are inputs which are disturbing but notwithstanding that extra care has been taken," Lt Gen Singh said but refused to elaborate on the details.
