Indian Navy on High Alert, 4 Men’s Carrying Heavy arms Spotted near Mumbai

The Navy is on the highest level of alert after two schoolchildren in Uran near Mumbai reported that they had seen four men dressed in black carrying guns this morning.

The children reportedly told their school that they had spotted the men around 11 am, their faces covered and “speaking a different language”, near an ammunition dump of the Navy in Uran.

“Children of Uran education society spotted the suspicious men, after which the police were informed,” said an official of the Navi Mumbai police. Deputy commissioner of police Dilip Sawant said the searches were on and so far nothing had been found.

Uran is about 50 km from Mumbai, where 166 people were killed in 2008 when landmarks in the city were attacked by 10 terrorists who came by sea.  It is close to important locations like the Jawaharlal Nehru Port and the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre.

The strike killed 18 soldiers and triggered tensions between India and Pakistan. Since then, security forces have claimed to have thwarted several infiltration bids in the border state.
