Mumbai: Police and coast guard officials were in a tizzy after an unidentified object was seen drifting near the Haji Ali Dargah on Tuesday.

It was later identified as a buoy.

Coast guard officials said that a helicopter on surveillance sortie reported an adrift buoy close to the Haji Ali Dargah at 12 pm today.

"The buoy has caused some anxiety to locals and media persons who had apparently mistaken the same for a vessel," a coast guard official said.

Officials said that the same buoy was also located by a coast guard patrol unit on September 20 and navigational warning to seafarers were issued.

Such buoys are used for navigational purposes close to the coast, the coast guard official said.
