AHMEDABAD: An abandoned boat was found stuck in a marshy land near Hansot coast in Broach district on Monday morning, arousing the suspicion of the Gujarat police.
There was no one on board but police found a mobile sim card cover and a mobile recharge voucher issued in Singapore. According to the Broach district police superintendent, Gautam Parmar, the white coloured boat could be an attachment of a large ship separated from it and washed ashore in the recent high tide.
But after the Mumbai terror attack, when the terrorists came by the sea route, the police were not taking any chances. The Broach police immediately issued alerts to the neighbouring districts to look for infiltrators. The police was also using the recharge voucher to contact the mobile company in Singapore to secure the mobile number recharged using the voucher, police said.
