Six Indian nationals have been arrested in Sri Lanka's eastern province on charges of abusing visit visas by indulging in textile trading.

The six, who had arrived here on visit visas, were found engaged in textile trading in the eastern town of Kalmunai, police said. They were selling textiles in a roadside market when they were arrested, police said, adding the six would be produced before the Kalmunai magistrate.

India is among 78 countries, whose citizens would not be granted visas on arrival from January 2012.

Sri Lankan authorities, complaining of abuse of the visa on arrival system, have introduced the electronic travel authorisation which requires travellers to obtain prior visa approval to visit the island nation. Only the visitors from Maldives and Singapore are exempted. (Source: Press Trust of India)
