PMSA Sailor Rehan Martyred Encounter with Indian Vessels

PMSA, sailor Rehan was martyred during encounter with Indian vessels.

According to a statement released on Thursday by the Director of Public Relations for the Pakistan Maritime Security Agency (PMSA), sailor Muhammad Rehan, a native of Karachi, was martyred after a confrontation with Indian vessel fishermen in Pakistani territorial seas.

While cruising Pakistan’s Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), a Pakistan Maritime Security Agency (PMSA) ship came onto about eight Indian fishing vessels that were deeply within Pakistani territorial seas and were involved in illicit fishing operations.

One of the fishing boats picked up speed and headed into Indian waters in an attempt to avoid being caught. The fishing trawler disregarded repeated verbal warnings and orders to stop and cooperate in the midst of a fierce pursuit in order to avoid being captured,” it stated.

The fishing boat eventually decelerated, enabling the boarding team of the PMSA ship to board. But as soon as PMSA officers boarded the fishing boat, it abruptly picked up speed and changed course, crashing into the PMSA ship. As a result, the fishermen and the PMSA boarding crew were pushed into the sea as the fishing vessel capsized and sank.

The fishing boat subsequently sank in the same location. Four PMSA employees and five out of seven Indian fishermen were quickly rescued by a PMSA ship. Two Indian fisherman are still missing at sea, but sadly, one PMSA sailor—Muhammad Rehan—later accepted martyrdom, according to the press release.

There is currently a search and rescue operation underway for the two missing Indian fisherman. The bravery and selflessness of the PMSA sailor who died while performing his duty serve as a sobering reminder of the dangers associated with maritime operations.
