The Border Security Force on Friday seized an abandoned Pakistani fishing boat from Harami Nallah in Sir Creek area off Gujarat’s Kutch coast, said an official.

The seizure of the single-engined wooden fishing boat was made at around 1:30pm and a check of the vessel and the vicinity had not thrown up anything suspicious as yet, a BSF statement informed on Saturday.

There was an ice box and five jerry cans on board, it added.
