Pakistan arrests 27 Indian fishermen

Indian Fisherman Release Lhr 19-06

KARACHI: Pakistan arrested 27 Indian fishermen and impounded their four boats on Saturday for allegedly fishing in its territorial waters in the Arabian Sea, a maritime security official said.

Such arrests are frequently carried out by both countries, as the maritime border is poorly defined and many fishing boats lack the technology needed to be certain of their precise location.
In August Pakistan released 163 Indian fishermen as an expression of goodwill.

Muhammad Hassan Setho, a senior prison official, said there were 420 Indian fishermen in Karachi jail.
India and Pakistan have been arch-rivals since gaining independence from Britain in 1947, and have fought three wars.-AFP
