Rajkot: Expressing concern over many Indian
fishermen inadvertently entering into Pakistani waters and
sometimes getting arrested, security agencies have appealed
fishermen to be more alert and not stray out of Indian water
territory.

The security agencies held a meeting at Porbander on
Sunday with representatives of fishermen`s associations to
discuss the issue of fishermen tending to cross Indian waters.

President of the Porbandar Boat Association Heeralal
Shiyal said that fishermen cross Indian water territory
despite having Global Positioning System (GPS) in their boats
either because they do not use the system properly or ignore
the signal received from the system adding henceforth the
fishermen would be asked to use the system properly to avoid
the arrest.
