21 fishermen stranded in Iran released, will be repatriated: Sushma Swaraj

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj tonight said twenty-one Indian fishermen from Tamil Nadu, who were stranded in Iran, have been released and will be repatriated soon. They will be repatriated to Chennai in batches starting from next Friday, she tweeted.
In a tweet, Mrs Swaraj said, I am happy to inform that 21 Indian fishermen from Tamil Nadu who were stranded at Nakhitaghi, Iran have been released with the efforts of Indian Embassy in Iran and our Consulate at Bandar Abbas.  
Tamil Nadu Chief Minister K Palaniswami had last month urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to direct the Indian Embassy in Iran to take necessary steps for bringing back the 21 fishermen. The fishermen were engaged in fishing in three boats belonging to their Iranian employers for more than six months, Palaniswami had said.
