Security agencies in the state went into overdrive after a 'terror' alert near Tarapur Atomic Power Station at Palghar in Thane. However, after four hours of rigorous checks, the alert turned out to be a case of mistaken identity.

The drama started when a captain of a private helicopter informed the Air Traffic Control (ATC) that he had seen "suspected terrorists" land near the power station. No sooner than the ATC receive the call, it alerted the Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS), National Investigation Agency, the navy and air force.

The area around the power station was cordoned off. However, after a thorough investigation, the security agencies found that the six "terrorists" were, in fact, members of an adventure sports club who were paragliding in the area, said an officer.

Three members of the club were brought to the Boisar police station where their statements were recorded. The management of the club said they organised paragliding every weekend and no special permission or clearance was required for it.
