The Indian Coast Guard, on the basis of intelligence input by Gujarat ATS, had jointly apprehended the Pakistani boat with seven crew on the intervening nights of May 30 and 31. The boat was carrying a consignment of contraband. The drugs were thrown into the sea by the crew.

Later, the BSF received information about some suspicious bags floating near a creek in Kutch. The BSF then launched a search operation along with marine police and recovered over 50 kg of drugs.
