New Delhi: In yet another act of transgression by Pakistan, one Indian fishermen was killed after Pakistan Navy opened fire on two Indian boats off the Gujarat coast.
As per a news report, Pakistan Navy fired on Indian fishing boat Premraj and Ramraj that had 5-6 fishermen on board. The boats had set sail from Okha on September 8.
The, apparently, unprovoked firing lead to the death of one fisherman, who was later identified as Bhatti Iqbal Abdul, a native of Okha.
Reports added that two coast guard vessels are on their way to the location of the fishing vessels and will toe the boats back to a Indian harbour.
As per the initial assessment, the Indian boats were in the international waters and had crossed into the Pakistani side of the maritime boundary.
The Ministry of External Affairs in Delhi is said to be ascertaining all the facts about the case before it will come out with an official statement.
