The boat was probably washed away due to rising water level in River Ravi in Pathankot sector, he said.
The seizure comes at a time when there is heightened vigil due to increasing tension between India and Pakistan.
The seizure comes two days after a Pakistani boat with nine crew members was apprehended off the Gujarat coast by the Indian Coast Guard on October 2.
