Six fishermen, four in one boat and two in another boat Friday left to sea from Athikoviladi in Valvettithurai area in search of lost fishing gear. The SLN soldiers patrolling the sea at that time had arrested the four persons in one boat and allowed the other boat with two fishermen to return to the shore, fisheries sources said.

Fisheries societies of the area brought this incident to the notice of the SLMM who in turn contacted the Palaly military headquarters. Palaly military authorities had told the SLMM that the arrested four fishermen would be produced in Mallakam courts on Saturday, fisheries sources said.
