Nagapattinam: Thousands of fishermen along with their family members from 63 fishing hamlets in the district on Thursday commenced an indefinite fast demanding the authorities to initiate immediate action for getting the release of 23 fishermen arrested by Sri Lankan navy.

The fishermen were arrested in separate incidents by the navy on charges of violating International Maritime Boundary Line earlier this month when they were fishing off Kodiakkarai.

About 3,000 persons were participating in the fast near the sea shore, police said. (IBN Live)

    Please go on strike for as long as possible so you leave Sri Lankan fish for Sri Lankan fishermen and do not indulge in bottom trawling. via DM Android App
