Senior BSF officials said a patrol team of 108 Battalion spotted the boat though nothing suspicious was found. "The boat had only some fishing equipment and fish."

The BSF had seized a similar big boat from near Kotavari Creek area on 20 February though nothing suspicious was found in this case too.

The Coast Guard had on 13 February arrested seven Pakistani fishermen and seized their boat on the International Maritime Border Line off the Jakhau Coast, also in Kutch district.
