Fishermen remanded

ISLAMABAD OCT. 26. The Pakistan police sent four Indian fishermen detained recently off the Karachi coast to prison today, taking the total number of Indian fishermen languishing in Pakistani prisons to 89.

Four captains of Indian boats were arrested for allegedly violating Pakistan's territorial waters, the official APP news agency said.

These were the first arrests after India two days ago proposed liberalisation of procedures to prevent mass arrests of fishermen on both sides.
