The BSF on Wednesday intercepted a Pakistani boat in Sir Creek area adjoining Gujarat's Kutch district close to the Pakistan maritime border with nine people on board.

A senior Border Security Force official said the boat "with eight to nine persons on board was caught by our patrol team in the morning close to the Sir Creek area”.

Interrogation teams have been sent to inquire about them in depth. So far, we have seized only fish and some fishing equipment from the boat. But the possibility of these people spying for Pakistan can’t be ruled out.

The Coast Guard had on 2 October seized one Pakistani boat off Porbandar in Gujarat and a country-made Pakistani boat was seized from Ravi river about 60 kms from Amritsar on Tuesday.
