The Indian Navy on Thursday beefed up security at its Karwar Naval Base after it sighted three trespassers inside the Base. When Navy personnel tried to apprehend them, the intruders ran away.
After the incident, Navy and the Police carried out a joint security exercise inside the Base.
"When security personnel went to apprehend them, they ran away. A thorough search was carried out, but no unauthorised person was found hiding in the area. Local police and a dog squad assisted in the search," said a Navy press release.
The expansion of National Highway 66 by a private company has been causing breaches in the boundary wall of the Naval Base at many places.
Whenever such breach is noticed, a thorough search is carried out in the area by the security personnel from the base and they also repair the breach.
