Earlier on Tuesday, Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani chaired a high-level meeting to review the security situation in the state after IAF's air strikes on terror camps Pakistan as the state shares both land and sea border with the neighbouring country.
Post the pre-dawn air strikes, the state was put on high alert and orders were issued to step up vigil at public places and important sites like the Somnath Temple and the Statue of Unity.
Defence forces and the Gujarat police are coordinating security arrangements, the chief minister said.
Rupani had congratulated the Indian Air Force (IAF) for the successful operation, which targeted a camp of the Jaish-e-Mohammad, the Pakistan-based terror group which had taken responsibility for the February 14 Pulwama suicide bombing that killed 40 CRPF personnel.
"I congratulate the Indian Air Force for successful air strikes and destroying of camp of Jaish-e-Mohammad in Pakistan," he told reporters after the meeting.
"After the Pulwama terror strike, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had promised to avenge the loss of lives. He has delivered what he had promised. Earlier also our nation had faced such attacks but the air force has avenged this by destroying a big (terror) camp by going deep inside the enemy territory," he added.
