Arrested Indian fishermen by Sri Lankan Navy sent for police remand

The Sri Lankan Navy today arrested five Indian fishermen from India's southern city of Rameswaram.

Sri Lanka Navy on Wednesday has handed over 6 more Indian fishing trawlers back to India, having made repairs to them.

Two Taiwanese investigators and an official from Far Eastern International arrived in Sri Lanka on Wednesday night to probe the matter, according to Gunasekera.

Detention of Indian fishermen by Lankan authorities is frequent, as they often cross the worldwide maritime boundary.

The fishing trawlers had been seized by the Sri Lanka Navy for poaching in the Sri Lankan territorial waters.

The consignment of cannabis had been packed into 44 parcels and it is suspected that the consignment had been dumped at sea with the intention of smuggling into the country later. They were handed over to the fisheries inspector in Mannar for onward action.
