Seventy-three Indians have been arrested by the Sri Lankan authorities for violating visa norms this year, officials said on Saturday.

A total of 49 Indian nationals were arrested on Saturday from a factory in Matugama, the Immigration and Emigration Department officials said.

They were staying beyond the visa term, they added.

Last month, 24 Indians, who were employed in a factory at Ingiriya, were arrested for staying beyond their visa term, officials said.

Those arrested have been sent to the immigration detention centre in Mirihana, the eastern suburb of Colombo, they added.

Officials said those arrested would be sent to India after completing necessary formalities.(PTI)

    Why do we employ Indians when so many of us are unemployed. Visas for Indians are so easy while visas for SriLankans to India require bank statements, finger prints etc.

    Unemployed are the unemployable graduates. The Indian three wheelers are there for the rest

    are you sure they ask for bank statement even with their new online tourist visa system ? anyway sri lankan online visa is much more easier to take and does not require much documents like they ask. how on earth our leaders are stupid enough to give them easy access when they dont do the same
