Kutch (Gujarat) [India], May 11 (ANI): As many as six Pakistani fishermen were apprehended on Thursday by the Border Security Force (BSF) personnel from Sir Creek on the Indo-Pak border in Gujarat. Given the sensitive nature of the area, even Indian fishermen are barred from catching fish in the creek. However, Pakistani fishermen often venture into Indian waters to catch fish and then sail off to their side. In the past, the BSF had recovered abandoned Pakistani fishing boats from Creek area on several occasions as the fishermen swam to their side upon spotting the BSF patrol. Earlier in March, the Indian Coast Guard held nine Pakistani fishermen off Jakahu coast and seized their boat from the Indian waters. In February, the BSF seized four abandoned Pakistani fishing boats from Sir Creek on the Indo-Pak border. (ANI)
