Pak arrested 27 Indian fishermen
The spokesman said the Indian boats had intruded 40 to 50 nautical miles inside Pakistan`s territorial waters. The Indian fishermen were later handed over to the Docks Police in Karachi and an FIR was lodged against them. "Well over 100 Indian fishermen have been arrested by the Pakistani maritime authorities during the current year," Pakistan Fisher Folk Forum president Muhammad Ali Shah told the media.
He said the two countries should forge an alternative method to check illegal fishing instead of arresting each other`s fishermen.
