Border Security Force (BSF) personnel Wednesday found an abandoned Pakistani fishing boat with a gun on board near Harami Nala area in Kutch district along the Indo-Pak border.
“As per the primary information available, a boat of Pakistani origin has been found near Harami Nala. We were also informed by the patrolling personnel that a gun was found on board. Further investigation are on,” said a BSF official.
The gun found in the boat appears to be used for poaching. The occupants might have fled after seeing the BSF patrolling party, officials said.
The boat was found a day after BSF seized another Pakistani fishing vessel in the creek area of Kutch. Two mobile phones and some fishing equipment were found in the boat Tuesday.
Boats of Pakistani origin are found near the Indo-Pak border at regular intervals. This is the fifth abandoned vessel seized by BSF in the last four months.
