Pathankot: An empty Pakistani boat was today seized by BSF troopers from River Ravi in Punjab’s Pathankot sector.
According to a senior BSF officer said “We have captured a Pakistani boat which had washed away to this side in River Ravi along the International Border (IB) in Pathankot sector.”
He said that the boat was probably washed away due to rising water level in River Ravi in Pathankot sector.
The seizure comes at a time when there is heightened vigil due to increasing tension between India and Pakistan.
The attack comes two days after a Pakistani boat with nine crew members was apprehended off the Gujarat coast by the Indian Coast Guard on October 2nd.
The Pakistani boat having nine crew members have been apprehended by the Gujarat coast during patrolling by Coast Guard Ship ‘Samudra Pavak’.
