New Delhi:

Pakistan Maritime Security Agency (PMSA) on Saturday captured over 100 Indian fishermen allegedly off Jakhau coast in Gujarat’s Kutch district, said a fishermen association official.

“We have learnt that more than 100 fishermen who were on board around 18 fishing boats were apprehended by PMSA near the international maritime boundary line off Jakhau coast on Saturday,” National Fishworkers’ Forum secretary Manish Lodhari said.

“The fishermen who escaped have informed us about this,” he said.

The NFF is trying to make contact with the Pakistani agencies to know the exact number of those abducted by PMSA, he said.

Earlier this month, PMSA had also apprehended 115 fishermen and seized 19 boats.

“In March so far, the PMSA has separately held over 225 fishermen along with nearly three dozen boats,” Lodhari said.
