While denying reports that the Sri Lankan Navy had fired on Indian fishermen, President Mahinda Rajapaksa said that he instructed the Navy to carry out a detailed investigation into the incident, the Hindu reported today.

Talking over breakfast to foreign correspondents at his Temple Trees residence in Colombo this morning, he said that the Sri Lankan Navy was not involved in the incident.

Asked if Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had spoken to him about the incident, he said that the Prime Minister had not. Asked if the Sri Lankan government would take action in the event of the firing being committed by its security forces, he said that despite the preliminary investigation - which established that the Navy was not involved -- he had asked the Navy Commander to conduct a detailed investigation.

The Sri Lankan Navy’s chief of operations, said that the incident occurred well within the Indian waters. “The sea is very shallow in these areas and the position of all our ships’ locations are monitored by land-based and other equipment. This is in the open and anyone can check,” he told The Hindu, denying that the Sri Lankan Navy had anything to do with the incident.

    Equip all naval crafts with a video camera. They are cheap now a days. That will help navy to refute any allegations they come across from the other side of the waters.

    Why are we conducting an inquiry if we are so sure that we did not do it?

    Ari Friday, 14 January 2011 10:30 AM

    This is the way to go, a full-fledged inquiry to ascertain the truth and help clear the foul air. If any wrong doing is established, culprits should be dealt with appropriately.
