The Paki boat – Terror Issue! was it? – India’s Coast Guard ordered to blow Pakistani boat

In contradicting statements, a Deputy Inspector General of the Coast Guard said Monday that it was the Coast Guard which blew up the Pakistani boat on the night of December 31, 2014 and to top up the woes for the Modi administration that it was he who ordered: “Blow the boat off…We don’t want to serve them biryani…” (Watch video above posted by The Indian Express)

This is the first time that the Coast Guard — in remarks that were recorded — has admitted that it destroyed the suspect boat which, the government claimed, had blown itself up under suspicious circumstances. Coast Guard DIG B K Loshali, chief of staff (northwest region), on Tuesday negated Indian government’s claim that the crew of the intruding Pakistani boat had set it ablaze.

Defence minister Manohar Parrikar, however, stood his ground. Statements and remarks by the MoD, Defence Minister and the Coast Guard had said the boat’s crew had set it on fire or were responsible for the explosion that destroyed the boat 365 miles off Porbandar after an hour-long chase by a Coast Guard ship on New Year’s Eve.

The Indian Express had reported that intelligence and naval sources had said that evidence suggested “use of disproportionate force” by the Coast Guard. The sources also said the videotape of the burning boat did not appear to show that explosives were on board. (Watch video above posted by The Indian Express)
