Sources from Rameshwaram stated that more than 3,000 Indian fishermen from Tamilnadu were chased away by the Sri Lankan Navy, who also hurled stones at them and snapped fishing nets of 50 vessels for fishing in their territorial waters. A fishermen association leader claimed on Thursday that Rameswaram Fishermen Association President, P Sesuraja said fishermen from this town and Mandapam region had ventured into the sea Wednesday morning in over 700 mechanized boats and were fishing near Katchatheevu when Sri Lankan naval personnel arrived there and threatened them.



As per report they also snapped the fishing nets of 50 boats and pelted stones at the fishermen before driving them away, he alleged, adding all the fishermen returned early Thursday morning without a catch. Moreover Sesuraja urged the Centre to take up the issue with the island nation’s government to prevent recurrence of such incidents.

Further referring to the 1974 India-Sri Lanka agreement on fishing, he claimed that they had rights to fish in Katchatheevu, an islet ceded to the neighboring country under the agreement. Reports added that seventeen fishermen from Ramanathapruam and Pudukottai districts were arrested on Tuesday by the Sri Lankan Navy for fishing off Neduntheevu.
