New Delhi/UNI: India has taken serious note of the killing of an Indian fisherman and injury to another in an unprovoked firing incident by the Pakistan Maritime Security Agency, and will take up the issue diplomatically with the Pakistani side, sources said.

According to sources, the matter is under investigation, and further details will be shared in due course.

A fisherman from Maharashtra was killed and a crew member of his boat was injured in firing by the Pakistan Maritime Security Agency (PMSA) personnel near the international maritime boundary line in the Arabian sea off the Gujarat coast on Saturday.

The deceased fisherman has been identified as Sridhar Ramesh Chamre (32). His body was brought to the Okha port on Sunday and an FIR was registered by the Porbandar Navi Bandar police.

The injured fisherman is being treated at a hospital in Okha, Gujarat.

According to reports, Chamre was on the fishing boat ‘Jalpari’, which had sailed from Okha on October 25 with seven crew members, five of whom were from Gujarat and two from Maharashtra.
