After an Indian fisherman was killed and another injured in Saturday’s firing by the Pakistan Maritime Security Agency (PMSA), the Indian government is now planning to take the incident strongly in Islamabad. According to media reports, in an unprovoked firing incident, an Indian fishing boat ‘Jalpari’ was fired upon, resulting in the death of an Indian fisherman and injuring another. The injured fisherman is undergoing treatment at a hospital in Okha, Gujarat. India has strongly condemned the death of fishermen in the firing by Pakistan’s Maritime Security Agency.
Case filed against 10 soldiers of Pakistan
Now a senior diplomat of the High Commission of Pakistan was summoned by the Ministry of External Affairs on Monday in the matter. After this incident, the Gujarat Police team had also registered a case against 10 Pakistani soldiers. According to media reports, India has taken this incident ‘seriously’ and India will take up the matter ‘diplomatically with Pakistan’. The incident is under investigation. Devbhoomi Dwarka Superintendent of Police Sunil Joshi said a fisherman from Thane in Maharashtra, who was on a fishing boat ‘Jalpari’, was killed after PMSA personnel opened fire on him and other crew members on Saturday evening. The body of the deceased fisherman, Sridhar Ramesh Chamre (32), was brought to Okha port on Sunday and an FIR was registered by the Porbandar Navi Bandar police.

Pakistan clarified on the matter
The Indian Coast Guard said in a statement that the matter is currently being investigated by police officers, and the crew is being jointly interviewed. On the other hand, Pakistan says that the boat was caught for poaching in the country’s waters. Several boats were plying in that area but they left after the PMSA’s warning. But one boat did not comply with those warnings and was therefore captured.
