The occupying Sri Lanka Navy on Sunday arrested 14 fishermen from Tamil Nadu in the seas off Nedun-theevu (Delft). Three of them are below the age of 18, according to SL police sources.

The SL Navy has assaulted the fishermen, including 14-year-old Dineshkumar, 17-year-old Naveen and 18-year-old Satheeskumar, sources in Nedun-theevu said.

The SL Navy has assaulted the Tamil Nadu fishermen using stones and batons, Tamil fishermen in Nedun-theevu said.
