BSF arrests six Pak nationals in Kutch

Kutch: Six Pakistani nationals were arrested from a small island in the Arabian sea near Jakhau on west coast of the district, Border Security Force (BSF) officials said here on Wednesday.

These men were arrested last night by the Crocodile Commandos, specially trained for operating in marshy waters and sea. Prima facie, the arrested men seemed to be fishermen, they said.

They will be interrogated at the BSF center in Koteshwar, they said.

According to the BSF, the Kutch marine police, while patrolling the coastal region, had found an abandoned Pakistani boat that contained a gas cylinder and some utensils.

An alert was then sounded and all security agencies in the region had increased patrolling, they said.
