[TamilNet, Wednesday, 12 September 2007, 17:45 GMT]
Ten Tamil Nadu fishermen arrested Tuesday by the Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) troopers for allegedly violating Sri Lanka's maritime sovereignty by straying into Sri Lanka's waters were ordered to stay out of the sea until September 20 by Mannar District Judge Mr.T.J.Pirapaharan.

The Talaimannaar SLN detachment handed over the fishermen to the Talaimannaar police for inquiry and investigation.

The fishermen were then produced in court Wednesday.

Two fishing trawlers seized from fishermen have been kept in SLN custody in Talaimannaar camp, sources said.
