India releases 3 Sri Lankan fishing trawlers

Three Sri Lankan fishing trawlers were released by Indian authorities on Saturday, the navy media unit reported. 

The release of the trawlers, which were confiscated for allegedly crossing into Indian waters, comes amid ongoing tensions between the two states over the issue of fishermen straying across the Interational Maritime Boundary Line. 

On Friday, Sri Lankan authorities released 16 Tamil Nadu fishermen who had been detained for two months for allegedly poaching.
