BSF seized a Pakistani fishing boat from the Harami Nala creek area near the Arabian sea in Kutch district of Gujarat close to the Indo-Pak border
The Border Security Force (BSF) seized a Pakistani fishing boat from the Harami Nala creek area near the Arabian sea in Kutch district of Gujarat close to the Indo-Pak border late on Sunday night, officers said on Monday. The boat was seized some 100 metres inside the Indian territory. Some fishermen, however, managed to flee into the Pakistani territory with another boat.
Nothing suspicious was recovered from the boat except some fish, fishing nets and fishing equipment, said BSF officers, adding an intensive search of the area was underway.
"Around 8:30 pm on April 3, a patrolling BSF team noticed the movement of two Pakistani fishing boats near the border pillar number 1164 and spotted around five Pakistani fishermen near the border pillar no. 1160 in the Harami Nala area," said the officer.
"The BSF patrol party immediately rushed to the spot after crossing the swamps and nalas on foot. Pakistani fishermen saw the BSF patrol coming towards them, took advantage of marshy terrain and fled into the Pakistani territory," he added.
The BSF patrol chased them and seized one Pakistani fishing boat around 100 metres inside the Indian territory near border pillar number 1160, the officer said.
