Nine Pakistani fishermen held in creek area in Gujarat
BSF on Wednesday apprehended nine Pakistani fishermen after their boat entered a creek area in Gujarat along the Indo-Pak International Border (IB) near Bhuj. BSF personnel on-board a fast interceptor boat noticed an engine-fitted wooden fishing boat which had ventured into the Indian waters around 10:00 AM, a senior BSF official said.
The personnel challenged the fishermen and caught them at Chouhan Nala near G-43 pillar, the official said. Security agencies are interrogating the fishermen and their Pakistan counterparts will be informed so that if there is nothing suspicious they can be handed back to the other side, the official said.
