KARACHI: The Pakistan Maritime Security Agency (PMSA) has apprehended five Indian fishing boats along with 31 crew members which were poaching in Pakistani waters, a spokesperson said.

The PMSA during patrolling in Pakistani waters arrested 31 Indian citizens from the fishing boats.

They were illegally fishing in Pakistan’s water limits.

The Indian fishing boats were towed to Karachi for legal proceedings against illegal fishing within Pakistani borders.
