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.
