Pakistan’s maritime authorities have arrested 30 Indian fishermen for allegedly fishing in the country’s territorial waters, bringing the total number of Indian fishermen detained this year to 304.
A spokesman for Pakistan’s Maritime Security Agency said that 30 Indian fishermen were detained and their five boats were seized yesterday. The detained fishermen were later handed over to the Docks police for further legal procedures.
They will be produced before a court today. The latest arrests come at a time when tensions between the two countries are escalating over various issues.
