India arrest Pakistani fisherman off Gujarat coast

NEW DELHI: India’s Border Security Force (BSF) on Monday apprehended a Pakistani fisherman and seized his boat from the Harami Nala creek area along the Indo-Pak border in Gujarat’s Kutch district, Hindustan Times reported.

The Pakistani national has been identified as Sartaj Ibrahim, a resident Badin district of the Sindh province of the neighbouring country.

The daily quoted an official saying that Ibrahim was apprehended by a BSF patrolling party when he was allegedly fishing “well inside” the Indian territory in the Harami Nala creek area along the border this morning.

Given the sensitive nature of the area, even Indian fishermen are barred from fishing in the creek. However, Pakistani fishermen often venture into the Indian waters for a catch, the official said.

Last month, the BSF had apprehended five Pakistani fishermen and seized 21 of their boats from the same area.
