An abandoned Pakistani fishing boat was seized by the Border Security Force (BSF) today from the Arabian Sea off Gujarat coast. “The BSF patrolling party… seized one Pakistani small sized wooden fishing boat fitted with single engine from Harami Nalla near BP number 1162/M inside the Indian territory,” a release issued by the BSF said.
It said that the boat was abandoned by the occupants who might have fled after hearing the sound of BSF patrolling boats. “No apprehension… seems like on hearing sound of BSF boats, Pakistani fishermen ran away to Pakistan,” the BSF said.
