Preliminary information indicated the people on board were Pakistani fishermen. However, “the boat and the crew members are being escorted to Porbandar for further investigation,” the release said.
The apprehension of the Pakistani boat comes days after the Indian Army conducted surgical strike across LoC, following which a high alert has been sounded across the land and sea border with the neighbouring country.
Earlier on Friday, the Coast Guard had said that sensitive sea areas off Gujarat coast have been “sanitised” and surveillance enhanced following India’s surgical strike on terror launch pads across the LoC.
