Indian opposition AIADMK chief J. Jayalalithaa today said the Indian central government was not doing enough to stop the alleged attacks on Indian fishermen by the Sri Lankan Navy, as incidents were continuing even after last week's alleged killing.
"Even before calming down of the situation after the killing of a fisherman (Jan 12), the Sri Lankan Navy had confiscated the Indian fishermen's catch, phones and threw their fishing nets into the sea," Jayalalithaa said in a statement here.
"If one looks at these, it seems whether India lacks the capacity to prevent the unwarranted attacks on its fishermen," she added.
Sri Lanka has denied that its navy had fired on three Indian fishermen that led to the death of one of them even as the Indian government has protested strongly against the incident and asked Colombo to avoid the use of force. (IANS)

Yes. I am a sri lankan and sad these incidents continue to happen. If Lanka navy doing this, they should be punished heavily even if things happened in sri lankan waters. India should act fast. There is no reason to kill. Also Why Indian navy allow their fishermen to jump the border?

The killing of fishermen by the navy and fishing in each others territory has been going on unabated for a long long time. Our President says that we have a very good understanding with the Indian Government. Why is then this situation prolonging without any solution?

She is desperately trying to hold on to any dead rope coming her way to win the next elections. Of course, it will end up in utter failure.

The opposition leaders in most south Asian countries have a common trait. They have ample time and reasons to accuse and criticize others.

Cannot this killing be the work of some interested elements seeking to spoil the relations between the two countries?
