Sri Lankan Navy has arrested 86 Indian fishermen last night on charges of illegally crossing the maritime border and poaching.


According to the AIR news, the Fisheries Ministry has said that the fishermen and ten boats were caught separately in the north and east of Sri Lanka late last night.


Forty three of the arrested fishermen are being taken to Kankesanthurai harbour and 43 to Trincomalee to be handed over to civilian authorities for further legal action.


Sri Lankan officials say that the arrests had to be made, since a large number of Indian fishing boats had crossed over to the Sri Lankan side last night. Clashes between Sri Lankan and Indian fishermen have also been reported in the area.


Officials of the Indian High Commission say that all efforts will be made to ensure an early release of the fishermen.

    Getting close to India has lots of negative effects on Sri Lanka compared to getting close to China. Hope the people and politicians of Sri Lanka realise this before it is too late.

    So the results of fruitful discussion by our honorable minister who is trying to beat the world record by being in the air for 100 days.Indians think that SL is their territory and they can do what they wish. Now with no to China, SL will be beggars once again at the feet of India.

    No point going to New Delhi, and engaging in talks with the Ind govt. Tell the Ind govt to resolve this prime issue first.
