Pakistan Navy on Sunday delivered medical assistance to an Indian boat which had developed engine problems eight days back and was lost at sea, says a press release issued by Pak-Navy.
Pak-Navy spokesman said that PNS Alamgir delivered assistance to Indian fishermen traveling in ST Mars. The fishermen were close to running out of food and water after their boat developed engine problems eight days back. Despite repeated appeals, no Indian boat had come to their rescue.
The Pakistani vessel rushed to the aid of the 12 Indian fishermen aboard ST Mars on humanitarian grounds as soon as they got news of the incident. The Pakistani Navy delivered food, medical supplies and also helped the fishermen repair the boat, a spokesperson for the Pakistan Navy confirmed.
