In joint operations, Forces check layers of coastal security


Security agencies on Wednesday conducted a coordinated drill aimed at blocking ‘enemy penetrations’ along the 7,500-km coastline and exclusive economic zone. A part of the country’s largest coastal defence exercise, Sea Vigil, the drill aims to validate the efficacy of the measures taken since 26/11 Mumbai attack.

Security agencies, mainly involving the Navy and the Coastguard, are simulating situations such as a hijacked fisherman’s vessel or a rogue ship or an ‘enemy’ special forces team targeting high-value assets and the effectiveness of each layer of security.

The marine police is responsible for guarding up to five nautical miles from the coast, beyond which is the responsibility of the Customs, then the Coastguard and then the Navy.   Read More
