Ahmedabad, May 13 (IBNS) The Border Security Force (BSF) on Wednesday detained 18 Pakistani fishermen after they were allegedly caught fishing in Indian waters, reports said.

"On 11th May 2016 at about 13 30 hours, a special BSF patrol party apprehended 18 Pakistani fishermen along with two fishing boats who were illegally fishing approximately four kilometres inside Indian waters in Nar Creek Area," an official release said.

The BSF also confiscated two boats and around 350 kg of fish, fishing nets, cell phones, ice box and a diesel tank before handing them over to local police for further investigations.

The release also stated, "The apprehended fishermen are residents of Chhacha Jan Khan, district Thatta in Pakistan. The place where they have been held is approximately 35 km from Koteshwar in Kutch district and approximately 4 km from Sir Creek."

The Hindu quoted a  police official from Kutch as saying, "We will lodge an FIR after interrogating the fishermen. It appears that they crossed the IMBL and entered Indian waters in search of a good catch."
