Intelligence Bureau (IB) officials say that the alert perception around the country is relatively high ahead of the Republic Day celebrations.

Moreover with so much cross border firing and the interception of the boat from Pakistan has raised the alert levels to very high.

Coastal alert continues:

The coasts along Gujarat, Maharashtra and also Tamil Nadu have been placed on high alert.
