Sri Lankan navy arrests four Indian fishermen

AIR
Sri Lankan navy has arrested four Indian fishermen along with their boat for allegedly breaching the International maritime boundary line and illegally fishing in Sri Lankan waters. 

A navy statement issued today said the arrests were made in Sri Lankan territorial waters in the sea, off the Kovilam lighthouse yesterday. It said the fishermen will be handed over to the Assistant Director of fisheries in Jaffna for onward action. 

The statement added that as a result of continuous patrols conducted by the Navy, the number of Indian fishing trawlers that are trespassing the Sri Lankan territorial waters has significantly reduced. 

Sri Lankan navy has been making such arrests from time to time and the fishermen are released after warning with a legal process.
