Jamnagar: Fourteen Pakistani nationals
have been arrested and their boat seized for illegally
entering Indian waters from near Jhakhau off the west coast in
Kutch district, Indian Coast Guard (ICG) officials said on Tuesday.

A Pakistani boat named Al-Anwari carrying 14 persons
on board was seized last evening by the ICG team patrolling in
the region, they said.

According to Coast Guard officials, 14 Pakistani
nationals had been apprehended and were being brought to the
Okha coast here where they would be interrogated by various

The Coast Guard had arrested 14 Pakistani men in two
separate incidents last month, after they illegally
entered the Indian territory from the Jhakhau region in
fishing boats.
