Fourteen Indian fishermen were arrested by the Navy along with three fishing trawlers for poaching in Sri Lankan territorial waters yesterday, the Navy said.

They said the group of Indian fishermen aged between 20 and 70 were arrested in the seas off Delft Island.

Subsequently, the apprehended fishermen were escorted to SLNS ‘Uththara’ and the seized trawlers were brought to SLNS ‘Elara’.

The arrested fishermen were to be handed over to the Assistant Director of Fisheries in Jaffna after a medical examination, for onward action.

The Navy said that as a result of continuous patrols conducted by the Sri Lanka Navy, the number of Indian fishing trawlers that are trespassing the Sri Lankan territorial waters has significantly reduced.
