India, SL discuss to release all fishermen in each other’s custody
India and Sri Lanka are in discussions to release all fishermen in each other’s custody. Official sources in Colombo told media that formal orders in this regard are likely to be issued in a couple of days. The decision comes as there are protests in Tamil Nadu over the killing of a fisherman in alleged firing by Sri Lankan Navy on Monday.
There are 85 Indian fishermen in Sri Lankan prisons, while 19 fishermen from Sri Lanka are in the Indian custody, mainly on charges of poaching into each other’s waters. http://bit.ly/Clipper28App
