The coastal police of Kerala have been put on high alert after following intel input that ISIS affiliates have set off to Lakshadweep and Minicoy Islands from Sri Lanka. As many as 15 ISIS affiliates set off towards the India islands (Lakshadweep and Minicoy) from Sri Lanka in a white boat. This information surfaced on Sunday.
As a result, coastal patrolling has been intensified. The Indian Coast Guard is on its toes surveilling the two islands and the maritime borders with the island country, Sri Lanka.
Amidst the terror, some news channels addressed them ISIS “activists” as opposed to ISIS “terrorists” and that has further added fuel to the fire. #IsisActivists
In accordance with the emergency laws, the police and the military have powers to arrest, detain and interrogate any suspects without court orders.
