India apprehends Pakistani merchant boats, reports say

Text by AFP

Latest update : 2008-11-28

Two Pakistani merchant vessels were stopped after reports that the gunmen had entered Mumbai by speed boat after being dropped off by a larger vessel, according to the Press Trust of India.

 
Two Pakistani merchant vessels have been apprehended off the coast of India following militant attacks in Mumbai, the official Press Trust of India reported Thursday.
  
The agency quoted Home Ministry sources as saying the ships were stopped off the coast of Gujarat state, just north of Mumbai.
  
The report came after the Indian navy said it was following up on suspicions that the gunman who attacked the city, killing at least 125 people, had reached the city by speedboat after being dropped off by a larger ship.
  
It also comes after Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said the militants had come from "outside the country," and the military official leading the operation to flush them out explicitly insisted they were from arch-rival Pakistan.
