Forty-one Tamil Nadu fishermen, arrested by Sri Lankan Navy on charges of crossing the International Boundary Line, arrived Rameswaran, Tamil Nadu on Saturday, after a court in the island nation ordered their release few days back.

Twenty-one fishermen were arrested on July 5 and the rest on August 5.

A court in Mannar had on September 25 ordered their release.

The Navy officials handed over the fishermen at the International Boundary Line to Indian Coast Guard, who brought them to the shore.

The court, however, declared as the property of the Sri Lankan government the five fishing boats seized by the navy during their arrest, official sources said. (PTI)

    No. This is the only remedy to stop these Indian poachers who have ignored all other efforts to stop them stealing the Jaffna fishermen's catch.

    If you are a true S-lankan you would side for our fishermen NOT the Indians
