Seven Pakistani fishermen who had illegally entered the Indian waters were arrested after a chase in the Sir Creek mouth area by the Indian Coast Guard on Monday.
“An Indian Coast Guard hovercraft, while on area patrol, apprehended seven Pakistani crew 1.5 nautical miles inside the IMBL (International Maritime Boundary Line), off Sir Creek Mouth Area,” a Coast Guard official said.
The Pakistani boat, named `Bhagan’, tried to escape towards the shallow waters but keeled over while speeding and capsized, he said.
