    RAJKOT: An Indian fisherman was killed and 30 were kidnapped by Pakistan's Maritime Security Agency from international waters off Jakhau coast in Gujarat on Saturday. The kidnapped fishermen were taken away in five boats.


    An eyewitness said that personnel of the Pakistani agency opened fire on Indian fishing boat 'Dhanvantari' around 4am.

    "We were fishing in international waters when the firing started. One our fishermen, Naran Sosa (30), died on the spot," said Mithabhai, one of the five survivors on 'Dhanvantari'. Sosa was a resident of Sarkhadi village in Kodinar taluka of Gir-Somnath district.

    "As soon as they opened fire, we fled. Sosa's body was sent to Civil Hospital in Porbandar from where it was taken to Jamnagar Medical College for postmortem,'' said Mithabhai.

    Manish Lodhari, vice-president of Porbandar Boat Association, said the police, coast guard and state government have been informed about the kidnapping. "We will give representations soon to the central and state government," he added.

    Meanwhile, Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi has asked the Centre to intervene on the issue. "Spoke to (defence minister) AK Antony on Pakistan's action against Gujarat fishermen. Urged him that Centre should take a serious note and investigate it," Modi tweeted.

    Gujarat's additional chief secretary (home) SK Nanda said the state government had taken up the matter with Union home and defence ministries. "We have written to the home secretary stating that the firing was unprovoked. A police case has also been registered in the matter." He said that the deceased fisherman was hit in the back.

    This unprovoked firing on unarmed fishermen on international water is a crime. These paki pirates should be brought to justice.

    Pakistan can kill our Gujarati fisherman. Sri Lankans can kill our Tamil Nadu fishermen. Even Italians have killed our Keralite fishermen. What next??? :noidea:

    Who the ---- cares if a fisherman or a soldier dies....till the time Gandhi family, rajmata and its Coterie can loot money uninterrupted - all these issues are trivial.

    Slaves always die and rulers have to go on ignoring if few slaves are killed by the enemy......!

    Why would anyone want to fire at fishermen? There is absolutely nothing brave about this cowardly attack from the BIGGEST cowards (pakis). The crazy thing is the pakis will be acting like they have achieved something big.

    They are containing and squeezing us from all sides. BTW our fish has been looted by many nations throughout our history even after independence.

    If you are going to declare open that you have no desire to expand but you are officially a banana republic then such things are doomed to happen.

    Having capability but no intent is outdated concept even for earning geo-political high moral brownie points.

    Why surprised?

    Sri Lankans do that to our fishermen down south all the time.

    If we keep MauniBaba's attitude, we will soon have Maldivians killing Keralites.

    This is what we get from our Most Favored Nation.

    Hope the talks are progressing well between India & our Most Favored Nation pakistan in Dubai. I wonder what is there for menu. Is it biryanis with belly dance?

    or is it dead Indian Fishermen & Indian solders.

    Bastard politicians

    I hope you remember the news item where indian prisoners in pakistan had written to maunibaba about deplorable conditions in paki jails. In fact about 8 to 9 of them had lost their minds from the daily tortures. There were forced conversions (obviously), and they demanded death over the prison life.

    I fear the same fate for these 30 fishermen and the horrible suspense for their families back home.

    We cannot remain toeing the line of cricket, talks and 'strong protests'... lets get strong..
