SLN takes Indian poachers to Point Pedro military base

[TamilNet, Sunday, 12 March 2006, 09:13 GMT]
Five South Indian fishermen from Puthuchcheri district in TamilNadu who entered Munai area in the northern waters around 11:00 a.m. Sunday, were taken to the shore by Vadamaradchi fishermen. Tense situation ensued between the Sri Lanka Navy troopers and the local fishermen as they refused to hand over the Indian fishermen to the SLN. However, the SLN soldiers threatened the local fishermen and have forcibly taken the Tamil Nadu fishermen to the 52-4 Brigade quarters for investigations, fisheries officials said.

The arrested fishermen, R. Rasa, 42, E. Babu, 22, I Nagarajah, 27, A Mannikavelu, 52, and K Kuppuraj, 43, are from Manalmetkuri village, Jegathapattinum in Tamil Nadu.

The local fishermen who held the Indian fishermen with their "kulla" type boat with trawler nets, insisted that the Indian fishermen should be warned by the Vadamaradchi Fisheries Union and sent back to South India without the involvement of the Sri Lankan Navy, according to John Bosco, the leader of Vadamaradchi Fisheries Union.

The Indian fishermen feared jail time of minimum of six months in the hands of the Sri Lanka Navy and the Sri Lankan Police, local fishermen said.

Katkovalm is localted 2.6 km southeast of Point Pedro.
