SLN arrests poaching Indian fishermen in northern sea

[TamilNet, Sunday, 28 September 2003, 21:03 GMT]
The Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) Sunday morning arrested seven Indian fishermen including two boatmen while poaching in the Sri Lanka territorial waters. They were taken to the navy installation in the Kankesanthurai port for questioning, police said.

Thereafter they were handed over to the Kankesanthurai Police who in turn produced them in Mallakam magistrates court Sunday afternoon, police sources said.

The Mallakam magistrate Ms Sarojini Ilangovan ordered two weeks' remand for the two boatmen and ordered the police transfer custody of the other five Indian fishermen to the Sri Lanka Navy soldiers who were then instructed to hand over the fishermen to Indian coast naval guard personnel in midsea, court sources said.
