He said, a court in Tuticorin on Friday night ordered the release of 59 fishermen from Ambarai, Trincomalee and Neergolumbu, arrested between September 17 and November 8, all of whom are also lodged in the Central Prison in Chennai.

While five were held on September 17, another 26 were arrested in October 10, 24 on October 31 and four on November 8.
