@AceNewsServices Indian Fishermen released from Karachi Jail

#AceNewsReport – PAKISTAN:June.18: Pakistan on Thursday released 113 Indian fishermen, AFP reported. The fishermen, who had been kept in a Karachi jail for nine months to a year, were put on a train bound for the eastern border city of Lahore.

The release of the Indian fishermen followed Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s phone call to his Pakistani counterpart, Nawaz Sharif, on Tuesday.

India’s leader offered best wishes to his counterpart on the start of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, and announced the release of the detained fishermen in an apparent move to ease bilateral tensions.

Fishermen are frequently arrested by both India and Pakistan because the maritime border between the two countries in the Arabian Sea is poorly defined.

VIDEO: ‘ PAKISTANI FISHING BOAT CARRYING EXPLODES KILLING FOUR CREW MEMBERS ‘

#AceWorldNews – PAKISTAN:Jan.02: A Pakistani fishing boat has exploded on Wednesday in the Arabian Sea, 365 kilometre off the coast of India, killing all four crew members.

The Indian Coast Guard chased the boat for almost an hour trying to stop and search it before firing warning shots, the government statement says.

The crew set the boat on fire which caused the explosion.

However, the authorities gave no comment whether the explosive was intended to be used in a possible attack.

In 2008, central Mumbai was attacked by gunmen who arrived in rubber boats.

The fighting resulted in 166 casualties.
