Authorities have been searching for 14 Pakistani fishermen who went missing after a boat collapsed in the Arabian Sea. The Maritime Security Agency (MSA) and the Fisherman’s Cooperative Society have been conducting extensive search operations for 14 Pakistani missing fishermen after a boat collapsed in the Arabian Sea for three days.

The fishermen went missing after their boat sank in the Arabian Sea off the coast of Thatta. They have not been found. Coastal Media Centre spokesperson Kamal Shah said the boat comprised of a missing fisherman called “Al Asad Ali.”

According to Kamal, the boat sank near Hijamara Creek because of strong winds three days ago. The Pakistani fishermen on board are still missing. Kamal has identified the missing fishermen as Riaz Bengali, Ahmed Bengali, Shakeel Bengali, Sajjad Koki, and Hashim.

Others include Riaz Ashraf, Noor Alam Bengali, Rahim Bengali, Sher Malah, Munir, Alam Kalam Bengali, Qayyum Behari, and Hasan Borough. Meanwhile, the Pakistan Navy’s Sea King helicopter and MSA speedboats were conducting search and rescue operations.

They sent another boat named “Al Abdullah” to Hijamara Creek to help conduct search operations. Nasir Boniri is the Cooperative Society’s security chief of Fishermen.

Nasir said the families of the missing fishermen were concerned about their loved ones. However, the families of victim fishermen claim no government authorities have visited them so far.
