27 Indian Fisherman Caught Earlier sent on 14 Day Judicial Remand
KARACHI: 27 Indian fisherman caught the other day for violating Pakistani waters were remanded by a judicial magistrate on Monday.
The Maritime Security Agency (MSA) detained the fishermen and impounded their four fishing boats on Oct 15 after finding them fishing inside the exclusive economic zone of Pakistan in the Arabian Sea and handed them over to police for legal action.
The police produced the fishermen before Judicial Magistrate (west) Ijaz Ali Abro, who sent them to jail on 14-day judicial remand and asked the investigating officer to submit an investigation report within the stipulated period.
A case was registered against them under Sections 3/4 of the Foreigners Act and 3/9 of the Fisheries Act at the Docks police station.
The MSA had also detained 71 Indian fishermen on identical charges a couple of weeks ago.
Suspects from Liaquatabad in Preventive detention
The Rangers informed an antiterrorism court on Monday about the 90-day preventive detention of two suspects for questioning.
The paramilitary soldiers and their law officers brought Asif, alias Bacha, and Mohammad Faisal before the ATC-II judge with the detention orders and jail warrants.
They submitted that the suspects were picked up in Liaquatabad and they had been detained for three months to hold an inquiry as there was credible information that the detainees were involved in targeted killing, extortion and terrorism-related crimes.
