The Border Security Force (BSF) on Thursday said that three commando groups of the Indian Air Force (IAF) have been air-dropped from three different directions to locate the suspected Pakistanis hiding in Gujarat’s Sir Creek area.

According to the BSF Gujarat, the commandos are closing in where the Pakistanis are hiding. “It’s extreme marshy area, mangroves and tidal waters are making troops’ task challenging. The operation is still in progress,” it said. According to an official, the commandos are part of a specialised unit of the BSF for patrolling and operational duties in the creek areas of the Rann of Kutch.

On Wednesday afternoon during routine aerial surveillance of the Harami Nala area through drone, eight Pakistani boats were spotted. Immediately a team sent through fast attack crafts to detains suspected persons but intruders sensed the situation and jumped off from their boats, the BSF officer said.

He further stated that they are still hiding in the area because the entire area is under the strict watch of BSF since then. “Extreme marshy area, mangroves and tidal waters are making the task of the troops challenging. The operation is in progress,” he said.

Earlier today, the BSF informed that eleven Pakistani fishing boats have been seized in the creek area of Harami Nalla in Gujarat’s Bhuj.

“Intrusion of Pakistani fishing boats and fishermen was detected on February 9 in the general area of Harami Nalla, Gujarat. During overnight search operations, eleven Pakistani fishing boats were seized. Operation is still in progress,” the BSF said.
