Mumbai: Security forces on Friday released the sketch of one of the suspected terrorists allegedly seen by some students near the Uran Navy base in Mumbai.

Security agencies are combing Mumbai for the suspect whose sketch has been released. He was seen along with 4-5 others in pathan suits, carrying weapons and backpacks near the Uran base.

The other suspects were reportedly wearing masks to cover their face.

Highest state of alert was issued on Thursday by the Western Naval Command along the Mumbai, Navi Mumbai, Thane and Raigad coasts in Maharashtra after reports of suspicious movement of this armed group dressed in Pathan suits in Uran.



The Maharashtra police, the NSG, Navy special commandos, the CISF and Maharashtra's specialized counter terror force have launched massive manhunt for these suspects.

Security has been tightened at the Mumbai airport, Gateway of India, Hotel Taj Mahal Palace and Siddhivinayak temple.

These four to five people in Pathan suits with shoulder bags were reportedly spotted by local students on Thursday.

Sources claim that the students said they overheard the men say the words "school" and "ONGC".

"They heard them talking about ONGC, School etc. They got scared. After mustering courage, they rushed to school teacher to inform her about what they saw. The teacher immediately informed the Uran police station and the police arrived within few minutes", sources said.

The government run power giant ONGC has a plant at Uran and also a few container terminals.
