Security is tightened in Raigad district and nearby areas after a suspicious boat with three AK series assault rifles and some small arms was found near Harihareshwar Beach in Maharashtra. Maharashtra's Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has said the boat belongs to an Australian couple who abandoned it after engine trouble. Prima facie, there is no terror angle, but it is unclear why it was carrying arms.
