Pakistan authorities arrested sixteen Indian fishermen for allegedly straying into the country's territorial waters, a security official said on Wednesday.

Personnel of the Pakistan Maritime Security Agency (PMSA) arrested the sixteen fishermen on Monday during an operation.

According to reports, three boats of the fishermen were also confiscated by the Pakistani authorities.

Following the arrest, a case has been registered against them at the Dock Police Station in Karachi.

Pakistan and India regularly arrest each other's fishermen who inadvertently enter into their waters due to absence of any proper technology to confirm the coastline border between Pakistan and India near Sir Creek in the Arabian Sea.
