Nine Indian fishermen arrested in Sri Lanka

243 Days ago

Colombo: At least nine Indian fishermen were arrested on Sunday by the Sri Lanka Navy for illegally poaching in the country's waters, the navy said.

Two Indian fishing trawlers were also seized at the Analative island off Jaffna peninsula, Xinhua news agency reported.



The navy said the arrested fishermen along with the trawlers were handed over to the department of fisheries and aquatic resources.



The arrests took place just a day after four Indian fishermen, released from Sri Lankan custody, were repatriated at the International Maritime Boundary Line.



Sri Lanka and India have been trying to resolve the row between their fishermen, with both sides having to face arrests.



In January, Sri Lanka released 102 Indian fishermen from jails as a goodwill gesture. However their fishing boats were not released. (IANS)
