    Despite providing these rescue missions some of these ungrateful Tamil Nadu fishermen making constant dubious allegations to tarnish the image of the SL Navy .

    Despite the rescue they will tell that they got harresed by the SL navy,..

    Don't act like a baby. These Tamil- nadu fishermen are poaching in Sri Lankan waters and they should be chased out by force.

    BackStreetBoy Wednesday, 03 November 2010 08:50 AM

    there is something fishy going on in those waters

    malkanthi Wednesday, 03 November 2010 08:50 AM

    Yesterday 15 Indian fishermen were injured by Lankan navy attack, today Eleven Indian fishermen were rescued. Navy is playing Smart!!

    Yeti Wednesday, 03 November 2010 01:52 PM

    What do you say about our navy now, Tamil Nadu?

    Kumbakarana Wednesday, 03 November 2010 10:15 AM

    LTTE ghosts are yet to leave Sri Lankan shores. They are still haunting in the northern and eastern waters. Obviously, Navy has to be on alert to protect the sovereignty of the country. All of a sudden news comes in that a discovery of haul of explosives, weapons, ammunitions etc. No doubt that a significant part of these deadly stuff had been reached here from Southern India and for which some of these Tamil Nadu fishermen are responsible of transporting these items on payment by the separatists. Of course, when they strayed into Sri Lankan waters in large numbers Navy has to do their duty to challenge them. As well, when these guys are in distress as humanitarian mission Navy will undertake to rescue even their worst enemy!
