Al- Qaida terrorists may have slipped into India using Sri Lankan fishing boats, The Economic Times in India reported. However the Indian Navy brushed aside the report saying it was impossible for them to reach Indian shores in foreign fishing vessels.
An uncorroborated intelligence input from Assam about groups of al- Qaida terrorists slipping into India was one of the reasons behind the high alert sounded over the weekend in New Delhi, The Economic Times in India reported.
Police forces have been asked to look out for groups of terrorists from the al-Qaida trying to sneak into the country from the western coast. Though the input was not corroborated, authorities did not want to leave anything to chance at a time when the Lashkar and other Pakistan-based terrorist groups sound determined to launch huge attacks on India.
