As concerns are raised about four Tamil Nadu fishermen who never returned home after setting off on Saturday night, fishermen in Tamil Nadu spoke to the Times of India, of the relentless alleged attacks by the Sri Lankan Navy.
District Secretary of the Tamil Nadu Mechanised Boat Fishermen Association, B Jesu Raja, said,
"The attacks have become commonplace nowadays and we are coping with them,"
Whilst another leader of a fishermen's association said:
"Their absolute goal seems to be to shun Tamil Nadu fishermen entering their borders for fishing. Unfortunately, our fishermen at Rameswaram have no other go than to venture into Palk Strait for a living."
