The Sri Lankan Navy has arrested 15 Indian fishermen and confiscated their tollers (boats) for illegally fishing in the country’s waters. This was informed in an official statement on Sunday. The fishermen were arrested on Saturday off the north-west coast of Mannar island near Talaimannar, the Navy said in a statement. The fishermen will be handed over to the fisheries inspector, the statement said.


Illegal fishing in the maritime domain remains a matter of contention between the two sides, despite several high-level talks. Sri Lanka and India also held talks recently on the issue of international maritime boundary challenges between the two countries. The Navy said the roles of both the navies and their coast guards were discussed in the 32nd International Maritime Boundary Meeting.

There are a lot of fishes in the Pak Strait

The fishermen issue has been a contentious issue in the relations between India and Sri Lanka. Sri Lankan Navy personnel have opened fire on Indian fishermen in the Palk Straits in several cases and have seized boats of fishermen accused of entering Sri Lankan waters several times. The Palk Strait is a narrow strip of water separating Tamil Nadu from Sri Lanka. A large number of fish are found in this water area, so fishermen from both the countries often come here for fishing.

The issue of dispute with Pakistan has also been

The problem of catching fishermen has been not only from Sri Lanka but also from Pakistan. Earlier this year, in response to another question, Union Minister of State for External Affairs V. Muraleedharan had said that at least 577 Indian fishermen are in Pakistani custody. He said that the issue of capture of Indian fishermen and their boats by Pakistani authorities is regularly taken up with the neighboring country. All possible assistance, including legal aid, is provided for the speedy release and repatriation of the fishermen. Minister Muraleedharan said that as a result of the continuous efforts of the government, 2,140 Indian fishermen and 57 Indian fishing boats have been brought back from Pakistan since 2014.
