    ACTION PUNJAB NEWS Desk: A Pakistani boat carrying drugs worth Rs 480 crore was intercepted about 350 km from Gujarat’s Porbandar overnight. According to officials, six members of the boat’s crew have been arrested.

    According to an official statement from the Coast Guard, “The Boat was apprehended about 350 Km from Porbandar into Arabian Sea in a sea-air coordinated operation involving Indian Coast Guard ships and Dornier Aircraft.”

    The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), Indian Coast Guard, and Gujarat Anti-Terrorism Squad all collaborated to carry out the operation.

    “The Indian Coast Guard, on specific intelligence input from agencies, strategically positioned its ships in Arabian Sea on Monday, 11 March 24. ICG also tasked its Dornier aircraft to scan and locate the boat in likely areas. After an exhaustive search in area, the ICG Ships, with teams of NCB and ATS Gujarat, arrived location and positively identified the boat which was moving suspiciously in dark,” the Coast Guard added. When confronted by Coast Guard ships, the boat began evasive manoeuvring before being pursued and forced to stop.
