Mumbai on high alert after school kids spotted 'men' armed with weapon
India's financial capital Mumbai is on high alert after two school kids spotted some men carrying weapons on Thursday morning at Naval ammunition depot INS Abhimanyu, opposite Mumbai harbour.

Along with the Mumbai anti-terror squad and other security agencies, the Indian Navy is put on high alert after this information was received.

MARCOS have been deployed at Uran Navy base and the city police has issued nakabanbdi and is examining the situation. Apart from that, the Colaba police too have alerted their officers to keep a watch. The situation is being termed as the 'highest state of alertness.'

Since the nature of the information is sensitive, the schools were closed. "Children of Uran education society spotted the suspicious men, after which the police were informed," confirmed an official of the Navi Mumbai police.

As per TV reports, around 4 to 5 men were seen wearing army fatigues in Uran near Mumbai. However, reportedly, the IB has not found anything nothing suspicious yet. Further details on the development are awaited.
