KARACHI: The Maritime Security Agency (MSA) on Wednesday arrested 25 fishermen from India for allegedly fishing illegally in its waters.

The security agency made the arrests during the last four days. The arrested fishermen have already been handed over to the police, who will produce them in a court on Thursday (today). Senior police official Adeel Chandio confirmed the arrests.

The fishermen are frequently detained for illegal fishing since the Arabian Sea border is not clearly defined and many boats lack the technology to fix their precise location. The fishermen often languish in jail, even after serving their terms, as poor diplomatic ties can take a long time.
