Pakistan arrests 59 Indian fishermen, seize 10 boats

LAHORE: Pakistani maritime authorities have arrested 59 Indian fishermen and seized 10 boats for illegally venturing into Pakistan’s territorial waters, ARY News reported.

The two countries frequently carry out such arrests as the maritime border in the Arabian Sea is poorly defined and many fishing boats lack the technology needed to be certain of their precise location.

The fishermen often languish in jail even after serving their term, as poor diplomatic ties between the two arch-rivals mean fulfilling official requirements can take a long time.
