Sketches of suspects issued in Uran; schools, colleges shuttext_fields
Mumbai: Police have issued sketches of suspects spotted moving suspiciously near a Naval base at Uran in neighbouring Raigad district, even as multi-agency search operations are on to trace them a day after a high alert was sounded along the Mumbai coast and adjoining areas.
Based on the description given by some school children at Uran who spotted the armed suspects, their sketches were issued late last night, police said Friday.
The schools and colleges in Uran and adjoining areas have been shut today.
"As per the reports, five to six persons were sighted in Pathan suits and appeared to be carrying weapons and backpacks," Naval spokesman Cdr Rahul Sinha had earlier said.
Some reports said they were in military uniform.
Despite carrying out massive combing operation in Uran and Karanja areas with the help of Navy, Coast Guard, CISF and Quick Response Team, police are yet to trace the suspects.
