    New Delhi (Sputnik) – Mumbai, one of India's largest cities, has been put on high alert after a group of suspicious people were spotted by schoolchildren near the Uran Naval base. According to the children, the suspicious-looking people were carrying arms and moving towards the ammunition dump of the naval base.

    Public Relations Officer of Indian Navy, D K Sharma said that “Navy is at a high state of alert after getting this input regarding suspicious activity reported by some school children in Karanja  near Mumbai.”
