Indian fishermen returned to the shore today without getting a good catch after they spotted seven Sri Lankan Navy ships patrolling in mid-sea, the PTI reported.


Indian Coast Guard ships were present to warn the fishermen from crossing the International Maritime Boundary line, according to Indian fishermen.


Fishermen leader P Sesu Raja said Sri Lanka had taken up regular patrolling in the sea after Rameswaram fisherman Bridgo was shot dead allegedly by Lankan Navy on March 6.


The 22-year-old fisherman was shot dead while fishing in a mechanised boat off Katchatheevu islet. Local fishermen had resumed fishing yesterday ending their 10-day protest against the Lankan Navy.


Fishermen had already said a delegation would leave for Delhi on March 20 to hold talks with the Centre on the issue of attacks.
