The Indian Coast Guard foiled a possible terror attack bid when it intercepted a suspicious Pakistani boat off the Porbander coast in Gujarat.

Coast Guard ships and choppers intercepted the suspicious Pakistani fishing vessel about 365 kilometres (some 200 nautical miles) off the Porbander coast on the intervening night of December 31 and January 1, the Defence Ministry said in a statement.

The vessel, which was carrying explosives, did not pay heed to the warning by a Coast Guard ship and instead increased speed and tried to escape away from the Indian side of maritime boundary.

A hot pursuit followed and it was intercepted after an hour-long chase.
