Indian fishermen held by Pak Navy

Fifty-five Indian fishermen have been arrested by the Pakistan Navy for allegedly fishing in the countryís territorial waters according to reports published in the Pakistan media  The Navy has also seized nine Indian fishing boats during a four-day operation last week in the Arabian Sea, .

The Navy deployed speed boats to intercept the boats of Indian fishermen, who were arrested as they were fishing illegally in Pakistanís territorial waters. ďThe fishermen, after initial investigations, have been handed over to the local police,

Fishermen from Pakistan and India are frequently detained for illegally fishing in each otherís territorial waters since the Arabian Sea does not have a clearly defined marine border and the wooden boats, used by fishermen, lack the technology to avoid them from drifting away.

Pakistan government had released 70 Indian fishermen from its jail as a goodwill gesture late last month. They are on their way back to India through Wagah land border near Lahore.
