A 50-year-old fisherman from Gujarat, who was apprehended by Pakistani authorities a year ago on high seas, died in a jail in that country due to unknown reasons, an official said on Monday.
A team of Gujarat Fisheries Department from Veraval has reached the Wagah-Attari border in Punjab to receive the body of the fisherman, said Fisheries Officer Vishal Gohel. After learning about Solanki's death from the Indian Embassy in Pakistan, the Central government asked the Gujarat Fisheries Department to carry out the further procedure, he said.
