Pakistan Maritime Security Agency has arrested 34 Indian fishermen for entering into Pakistani waters and getting indulged in illegal fishing.
The Agency said during an early morning open sea operation, the fishermen in six different boats of theirs were found violating international water boundaries by fishing within Pakistani territories.
Last month, the Pakistan government had released more than 250 Indian fishermen from the Landhi and Malir jails in Karachi. The fishermen were released in three phases. The Pakistan Foreign Ministry had earlier announced 360 Indian fishermen would be released in four separate batches in April as a goodwill gesture. Indian and Pakistani fishermen often get arrested in foreign waters due to lack of technology and indistinct maritime boundaries.
