The Indian Navy arrested three Sri Lankan fishermen for fishing in Indian territorial waters, yesterday (15). The boat used by the fishermen was also impounded, said Indian police.

The fishermen from Mannar were arrested by Indian Navy personnel, when they were fishing off Dhanushkodi, they said.

The fishermen were handed over to the Indian marine police, who registered a case against them and are investigating.

In October 2019, 18 Sri Lankan fishermen were arrested and their boats impounded by the Coast Guard for fishing off Nagapattinam.
