3 Pakistani Fishermen Arrested, 14 Boats Seized Off Gujarat Coast

Kutch:  The Border Security Force or BSF today apprehended three Pakistani fishermen and seized 14 boats from the Harami Nala creek area along the India-Pakistan border in Gujarat’s Kutch district.

Yesterday too, the border guarding force had apprehended two Pakistani fishermen and three boats from the same area.

A patrol party of the BSF’s 79th battalion, deployed to guard the India-Pakistan border, apprehended three fishermen early today from the “general area of the Harami Nala creek”, a senior BSF official said.

The men and a few items seized from the boats have been handed over to the local police, the official said.

Several fishing boats and Pakistani fishermen have been caught in the past while fishing in Indian waters.

Given the sensitive nature of the area, even Indian fishermen are barred from fishing in the creek.

However, Pakistani fishermen often venture into Indian waters for a catch.
