In a shocking development, which will escalate tensions in the Indian sub-continent, the Pakistan marines fire at two Indian boats off the Gujarat Coast, killing one Indian fisherman, identified as Iqbal Abdul Bhatti.
Two Indian boats ‘Premraj’ and ‘Ramraj’ came under attack, when they were on a fishing mission. The Pakistan marines did not fire the warning shots and it was completely unprovoked, it is believed.
It is not immediately confirmed, but sources claim that the incident occurred in the International Waters, and not in Indian or Pakistan Waters. The attacked Indian boats are being toed back by the Coast Guard. Further details are awaited. The MEA has sought a report from the Indian Coast Guard on this issue.
