Ahmedabad: The Indian Coast Guard on Monday detained 26 Pakistani fishermen and seized five fishing boats off the coast of Gujarat.
The ICG Interceptor Vessel C419 of the Coast Guard seized the Pakistani boats in the Indian waters.
The 26 crew members were taken to Jakhau for probe, ANI reported.
This is the second such arrests in recent times by the Coast Guard off the Gujarat coast.
Earlier in October, BSF had apprehended nine Pakistani fishermen after their boat entered a creek area in Bhuj.
The BSF patrol in the creek area in Bhuj noticed a wooden fishing boat which had ventured into the Indian waters.
The force personnel challenged the fishermen and caught them near Chouhan Nala near G-43 pillar.
The nine Pakistani nationals were detained for questioning but nothing objectionable were recovered from them, except some fishing equipment.
