India has taken a genuine note of the “unjustifiable terminating episode” in which a Pakistan Maritime Security Agency (PMSA) vessel terminated at an Indian fishing boat, killing one angler and harming another.

“We will take up this issue carefully with Pakistan,” said sources here. While Pakistan said six Indian anglers were arrested, there was no authority word from the Indian side. The PMSA terminated at the Indian fishing boat close to the global sea limit line in the Arabian Sea off the bank of Gujarat on Saturday evening, the Coast Guard and Gujarat Police said in isolated explanations.
