20 Indian fishermen arrested


Twenty Indian fishermen have been arrested after being found poaching in Sri Lankan waters by the Sri Lankan Navy in the seas off
Talaimannar last night, the Navy said.

Navy Spokesman Commander Kosala Warnakulasuriya said four fishing vessels had also been seized along with the fishermen and they had violated the International Maritime Boundary Line and were using the illegal method of bottom trawling.

He said the fishermen together with their trawlers would be handed over to the fisheries authorities in Talaimannar for further legal action.
