Karachi: Twelve Indian fishermen have been arrested by Pakistani authorities for allegedly straying into the country's territorial waters off the coast of Sindh province, a security official said Monday.

They were arrested over the weekend by personnel of the Pakistan Maritime Security Agency (PMSA) during an operation. A security official told PTI that two boats of the fishermen were also confiscated.
