4 Tamil Nadu fishermen arrested by Sri Lankan navy

The Sri Lankan navy yesterday arrested four Tamil Nadu fishermen for allegedly poaching fish. 

The fishermen were taken to 'Elara' navy base today and are to be handed over to the Assistant Director of Fisheries in Jaffna. 

Last month over 3000 Indian fishermen were chased away by the Sri Lankan navy and eight fishermen arrested. 

The arrest and chasing away of Tamil Nadu fishermen by the Sri Lankan navy remains a regular occurence despite attempts by India's Central Government to attempt to resolve the issue.
