They crossed the border while catching fish


ATTARI: The Pakistan Government on Friday night released 198 Indian fishermen at the Attari-Wagha border, who were detained for "crossing the maritime international border". Fishermen who cross the maritime international border in the Arabian Sea are charged with violating the Passport Act of the respective countries and are given a jail term of about six months.

According to the information, they crossed the border while catching fish as they did not know the border in the sea. Indian and Pakistani fishermen frequently cross the international maritime boundary in the Arabian Sea. They are caught by the concerned agencies of both the countries.
