Such incidents happen on daily basis but based on the mentioned reports Pakistan Coast Guards are seemingly working hard and doing justice with their post of saving people from such collateral damages but God Forbidden if something happens the Coast Guard is not at the centre of the allegations. The target is and should be their superior officers as well as those to whom the latter are accountable. It is an act of political immorality to displace responsibility on the Coast Guard men who are executing orders. Perhaps the orders are not written down but the practice suggests they are very clear.
