Fishermen in Rameswaram did not put out to sea for the fourth consecutive day, on Friday demanding immediate release of five fishermen who were arrested by Sri Lankan navy.

Five fishermen hailing from Rameswaram were detained by Sri Lankan navy on Monday last on the charges of smuggling drugs to Lanka. They are lodged in Jaffna prison.

The mechanised boat fishermen began an indefinite strike since then demanding their immediate release and dropping of the cases registered against them by Sri Lankan government.

Meanwhile, Dr. M.H.Jawahirullah, Ramanathapuram MLA and pesident of Manithaneya Makkal Katchi (MMK), urged the Central and state governments to take immediate steps for the safe release of fishermen. (Source: PTI)

    the fishermen are demanding their fellow drug smugglers be released? i say let them strike and sink the 5 drug lords to lay with the fishes ;)

    Better to keep the culprits in custody for some more time, because at least then our own fishermen can engage in their legitimate business without interference from the rogue fishermen from the Tamil Nadu. If our fishermen were caught with drugs, would the Tamil Nadu Police just allow them to go scot-free?

    Good. More fish for us and prices will come down.
