Ten Indian fishermen along with two fishing trawlers were arrested by the Navy for poaching in Sri Lankan territorial waters yesterday.

The Navy said the fishermen were arrested by the Northern Naval Command during a patrol conducted in the northwestern sea area of the Delft island.

“The group of Indian fishermen were poaching in Sri Lankan territorial waters when the apprehension was made. Subsequently, the arrested fishermen were escorted to SLNS ‘Uththara’ and the seized trawlers were brought to SLNS ‘Elara’” the Navy said.

They would be handed over to the Assistant Director of Fisheries in Jaffna for onward action.

    Much of my comments are never published in this sector for whatever reason. But here is my say on this>..Serves these thieving Fishermen from Tamil Nadu right. They really deserve 20 months RI plus any other punishment for their thieving and stealing the livelihood of Sri Lankan Fishermen. Hope the SL Navy keeps on this alert as I am sure they will. MM
