The Sri Lankan Navy today said that they have not carried out any kind of attacks on the Indian fishermen who strayed in to the Sri Lankan waters.

Responding to the statement made by top Indian Naval Officer Vice-Admiral K N Sushil about SL Navy not adopting a ‘pre-planned’ method in attacking Indian fishermen who strayed in Sri Lankan waters, Navy Spokesman Captain Athula Senaratne pointed out that there is absolutely no requirement to adopt a ‘pre-planned’ method, as the SL Navy has not attacked any fishermen during any instance.

“SL Navy has not and will not be attacking any fishermen on any account, be it Indian or any other nationality,” he said.

Vice-Admiral Sushil had made this comment answering a question raised by the Indian media whether Tamil Nadu fishermen were being fired at or killed allegedly by the Sri Lankan Navy.

    Poor Tamilnadu fishermen don't inflict injuries themselves, if it is not Sri Lankan navy, who else is attacking the fishermen. Use of disproportionate and brutal force will not solve any problem

    If so how come more than 500 fishermen have died in the high seas during the last 15 years? You must tell this to the TN fishermen!

    The Sri Lankan Navy never erred.

    However, there were a few exceptions and all of them were not pre-planned. Hence, does not warrant any investigation.

    Bruz Saturday, 23 October 2010 03:27 AM

    Oh yes. SL navy never ever killed any Indian fishermen, or SL army ,airforce never killed any civilians.It is true,true,true.Even Indian navy officer has said it.

    If not navy then who else other than LTTE?.

    Ranger Saturday, 23 October 2010 04:07 AM

    LTTE always operated with TN fishermen. So if SLN feels that they are threat to our defence of Sri Lanka, they should be destroyed at any cost.

    above the crowd,
    this is not a joke man.

    With our reputation fast dwindling internationally, anything said against our country is well received all over the world.

    Obelix Saturday, 23 October 2010 08:23 AM

    Sri Lanka is a Buddhist country. As such we never attack or kill any living been, We may throw then into prison if we do not like them.

    silva Saturday, 23 October 2010 09:42 AM

    Due to diseases, bad weather and attacked by LTTE.
