    What has happened to these Indian fishermen. Their politicians crying that they are getting arrested by our Navy in wrong manner but they are coming and fishing in our areas constantly by giving problems to us. Either the central government must come and give them a proper order to refrain from doing these things which will harm to our mutual relationships.

    They were enjoying fishing belongs to our territory during the war, now it is hard to give up this very fruitful bad habit. They would have made good money during the war, stealing fish those days from our fisherman. Time to give it up guys, this is another country you are messing with and be prepared to face the consequences accordingly. I am sure Sri Lankan Government will harden the rules for these thieves.
