Sri Lankan Navy attacked Indian fishermen, damaged several boats

Chennai: Indian fishermen have been reportedly attacked by Sri Lankan Navy personnel in Rameswaram, Tamil Nadu, damaging their boats and fishing nets. Tamil Nadu fisheries department officials have informed in this regard on Thursday. Officials said the incident took place near Kachchatheevu late on Wednesday night when Sri Lankan Navy personnel in about 10 patrol boats threw glass bottles and stones.

Tamil Nadu Fisheries Department officials said that though no one was injured during the attack by Sri Lankan naval personnel, 25 boats were damaged. At the same time, fishing nets in about 40 boats were damaged in an attack by Sri Lankan personnel. The damaged boats were pulled to shore with the help of other boats. Fishermen's union representatives N Devdas and P Sesuraja expressed concern over such incidents and said fishermen are afraid to go to sea due to such incidents. A complaint has been lodged with the fisheries department officials in connection with the matter.

Earlier, in August, a similar incident was reported when hundreds of fishermen who boarded 300 boats on the Mandapam beach in Rameswaram and went fishing also complained of an attack. Fishermen said that while they were fishing near Kachtivu, 5 Patrolling Boats of the Sri Lankan Navy surrounded them and started raining stones on them. The Sri Lankan Navy said Indian fishermen have violated Sri Lankan seas, while Indian fishermen claim to have been in the same area from where they have been fishing for many years.
