The Border Security Force (BSF) has launched a search operation near Sir Creek off the Kutch coast after two Pakistani fishing boat were found abandoned in the area.
Earlier in August, BSF had found two Pakistani fishing boats abandoned in the 'Harami Nala' creek area along the Indo-Pak border near Kutch district of Gujarat. A thorough search operation was launched after two single-engine fitted Pakistani boats were found abandoned in the Harami Nala, but nothing suspicious was recovered from the area.
‘Harami Nala’ is a sluggish and shallow water channel in the Sir Creek area from where the Border Security Force reports cases of seizure of Pakistani fishermen or abandoned boats.
In May this year, the BSF captured a Pakistani fishing boat from the area while the fishermen on board managed to escape.
