Karachi: 

Pakistan has arrested 12 Indian fishermen for allegedly straying into the country's territorial waters off the coast of Sindh province, a security official said today.

They were arrested over the weekend by personnel of the Pakistan Maritime Security Agency (PMSA) during an operation.

A security official said two boats were also confiscated.

"The fishermen were handed over to the Docks Police Station in Karachi to register a case against them for illegal entering into Pakistan," the official said.

Last month, the PMSA arrested 16 Indian fishermen and seized their three boats.
