Indian delegates leave for Pak to bring back 57 boats belonging to Indian Fishermen

Porbandar, Feb 21 (ANI): A team of delegates from the coastal city of Porbandar in Gujarat left for Pakistan to get back 57 boats belonging to Indian fishermen after the country's government decided to release them. Pakistan and India routinely detain boats and fishermen for entering each other's waters for fishing. They mistakenly enter other's waters as there is no demarcation of maritime boundaries. A team member going to Pakistan, Arvind Panjari said that the team was making all efforts to get back the boats as soon as possible. Meanwhile, a boat owner, Anil Motiwars said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has fulfilled his promise of getting them their livelihoods back. India shares an expansive oceanic border with Pakistan without any perceptible demarcation and fishermen on both sides ignore rules while netting their catch. Feb 21, 2015
