Two Indian fishermen went missing and a Pakistani sailor was killed in a maritime incident on Thursday, according to Pakistan maritime authorities. The Pakistan Maritime Security Agency (PMSA) reported that one of its ships encountered eight Indian fishing vessels engaged in illegal activities in Pakistani waters. Despite verbal warnings, one fishing boat attempted to escape towards Indian waters, leading to a collision with the PMSA ship, causing it to capsize and sink.

Five Indian fishermen and four PMSA personnel were rescued, but one PMSA sailor died and two Indian fishermen are still missing. A search and rescue operation is ongoing, and legal action has been taken against the Indian fishermen for their unlawful behavior.

The incident highlights the dangers faced by fishermen in the region and the importance of upholding maritime security. Efforts to locate the missing fishermen continue as the agency works to prevent further such activities.
