Acting on a tip off from the Sri Lankan Navy, an Indian naval patrol team intercepted a fiberglass boat with two armed men and chased them away when they tried to enter Indian territorial waters.

“The team acted on a tip off from the Sri Lankan Navy that the boat with two armed men would try to cross Indian territorial waters,” police quoted Coastal Marine Group police and Intelligence Bureau officials as saying.

The incident occurred at Olaikuda area, they said.

There was an exchange of fire between the two but none were injured and the Sri Lankans managed to go back to their territorial waters, they said.

Marine Police and Q branch and also the IB, said they got details from some Indian fishermen who were in the area.

Following the incident, CMG has intensified patrolling.

Police said naval officials had told them that an enquiry was being conducted into the incident. (PTI)
