Says no boat sailed off from the Keti Bunder port
Pakistan has rejected India’s claim that the crew of a Pakistani fishing boat blew up and sank their vessel in an attempt to evade capture at the hands of the Indian Navy in a high-speed chase at sea, Geo News reported.
Pakistan Foreign Office spokesperson Tasneem Aslam denied that any boat had sailed off from Keti Bunder port of the country’s Sindh province.
Sources in the foreign office termed the Indian claim as mere propaganda to tarnish the image of Pakistan, the report added.
On Friday, the Indian officials said that a suspicious Pakistani fishing boat apparently loaded with explosives blew up in the sea and sank off Gujarat after being intercepted by the Indian Coast Guard.
