Sri Lankan navy arrests 10 Indian fishermen

Yet another group of Indian fishermen have been arrested by the Sri Lankan navy on Thursday, as the detention of fishermen for reportedly crossing the international boundary continues.

The group of 10 fishermen from Karaikal were reportedly apprehended 26 miles off Point Pedro and taken to Karainagar naval base, where they will be prosecuted, reports the Times of India.

The latest incident comes as the remand of six Indian fishermen from Rameswaram, who were also arrested by the Sri Lankan navy, was extended to December 21.

The repeated arrest of Indian fishermen has been a controversial issue in Tamil Nadu, with Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa having written repeatedly to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to intervene.
