    India attacks Pak fishing boat

    And they say that Pakistanis are engaged in terrorist activities

    KARACHI (Agencies) - Two fishermen were injured after Indian coastguards opened fire on a Pakistani fishing boat, a spokesman for the Pakistan Fishermen's Co-operative Society said Monday.
    The boat named Al-Shakoor was damaged and two fishermen on board were injured by bullets, said the spokesman, Haji Ghazanfar Ali Boota.
    An Indian coastguard vessel attacked the boat while it was fishing in Pakistani territorial waters off the coastal town of Thatta, he said.
    The spokesman identified the injured fishermen as Mohammad Yusuf, 50, and Elahi Bux, 18.
    Pakistan and India last month agreed to repatriate hundreds of fishermen languishing in rival jails for the past several years, after they were detained for illegally entering each other's territorial waters.
    Boota said he hoped that the incident would not effect the repatriation programme.
    Meanwhile, Indian coastal authorities have detained 61 Pakistani fishermen and six fishing boats during the last two weeks on the charges of illegal fishing.
    An official of Fishermen's Cooperative Society (FCS) said on Monday that two fishing boats were detained by Indian Coast Guards four days ago.
    These are Al-Rehbar with 22 crew and Safina-e-Mehar Ali with 15 fishermen.
    Four fishing boats which were detained 10 days ago included Al-Noor, Al-Farida, Al-Shah and Machera with six fishermen each on board.
    In addition, 298 Pakistani fishermen are already in Indian custody for the last couple of years along with 44 boats.
    The Indian government had agreed to release 160 fishermen and 18 boats but their arrival has been delayed due to visa formalities.
    After their release, 199 Pakistani fishermen will remain in Indian jails.
    About 112 Indian fishermen are detained in Pakistan along with 17 fishing boats.

      It is not new. Very recently, during Kargil times few hundred fishermen were released from jails of both sides as a part of agreement. One side will catch fishermen who had by mistake entered other country's waters and then other side will also catch them so that there is exchange. These fishermen end up spending 5-10 years in jail often.

        I agree with ZZ. Its hardly an act of war by India? The waters between Indian Gujarat and Pakistani Sindh are hotly contested fishing waters, and not anything to go to war over.
