August 17, 2009 16:03 IST

Foiling an infiltration bid, the Border Security Force arrested nine Pakistanis from Creek area in Gujarat's Kutch district on Monday.

"We had information that some people from across the border were trying to infiltrate in to Indian territory. So we conducted a special operation and apprehended nine men," a BSF spokesperson said.

All the arrested Pakistani men were middle-aged and arrived in a boat, which has been seized.

"They looked like fishermen, but following interrogation it was found that they were not fishermen," he said.

"They are being interrogated and further details will be available only after the questioning is complete," the spokesperson added.
