Ahmedabad: Fishermen along the international maritime border in Kutch district of Gujarat have been advised not to venture into the deep sea following Thursday's surgical strikes by Indian forces across the Line of Control (LoC).
The fishermen have also been asked to remain within the state regions.
Officials said they have been asked to be on alert and be in constant touch with the security agencies as well as share information about any suspicious movement.
Similarly, people in the land borders in north Gujarat's Banaskantha region have been told to keep a vigil for any movement.
Sources, however, said unlike Punjab, there are no plans for evacuation of people in the border areas.
