CHENNAI: Ten Sri Lankan fishermen, arrested on charges of violating sea perimeters by Coast Guard officials, were on Thursday handed over to the Kasimedu fishing harbor police. The fishermen in two boats carrying 600 kg of fish had been nabbed during surveillance along the eastern seaboard by coast guard ship Sarang on November 22.

"The boats were spotted 126 nautical miles off Nagayalanka near Machilipatnam in Andhra Pardesh. Initially we warned them and asked to go back. But later, we found they had been in Indian waters for more than a week," a senior coast guard officer told TOI.

Coast Guard officials said the boats, Praboth-2 and Mayomi from Matara in Sri Lanka, along with the 10 fishermen were apprehended for violating Sections 3/10 (prohibition of fishing in maritime zones of India by foreign vessels), 7/14 (foreign vessels entering with out license or permit) and 15 (a & c) (penalty for obstruction of authorized officers) of the Indian Maritime Zones Act of 1981. "All of them are Sinhalese and they had equipped the boats with GPS, radar and long range high frequency communication equipment posing high security risk for the coast," said Commandant S V Srikanth, regional public relation officer, Coast Guard.

    How come we don't hear any authorities from SL protesting about this recent arrest and demanding their release?
