Indian ‘fisherman’ dies in Pak prison

KARACHI, Feb 4, (AFP): An Indian fisherman arrested more than a year ago for straying into Pakistani waters died in prison in Karachi on Tuesday after an illness, a senior jail official said. The man, named by jail officials as Kishan and aged about 50, died in Landhi jail hospital, where he was being held with more than 150 other Indian fishermen. India and Pakistan frequently arrest fishermen for violating territorial waters, though the Arabian Sea border is poorly defined and many fishing boats lack the technology needed to be certain of their precise location.
