Ahmedabad: A Pakistani fishing boat, which had ventured into Indian territory, was intercepted and seized by BSF from Haraminala area near the west coast of Kutch, BSF officials said Wednesday.

"We had intercepted a Pakistani boat in Haraminala area on Monday evening. Seeing our troops, the men inside the boat jumped into the water and swam back into Pakistani territory," BSP Inspector General A K Sinha told reporters.

"The boat has been seized. However, nothing suspicious was found inside the boat," he said.

Sinha said the BSF has increased patrolling in the areas like Haraminala and Sir Creek areas near the Indo-Pak border off the Arabian sea coast, to prevent intrusion into the
Indian territory.
In April, the Creek Crocodile Commandos of the BSF had apprehended a dozen Pakistani men, who were trying to infiltrate into the country, and seized two of their boats from the Sir Creek area.
The BSF had also foiled couple of similar infiltration bids by Pakistani fishermen near the Haraminala area on the Indo-Pak border in March.
