A Sri Lanka (SL) Court has filed criminal cases against 10 of the 19 fishermen from Pudukottai, 27-days after they were arrested at Killinochi. S. Emirit and P. Sesuraja, President and Secretary respectively of Tamil Nadu Coastal Fishermen's Association, said the Navy had charged them for "deliberately" colliding their boat with the Sri Lankan high speed modern patrol boat and damaging it.

The Judicial Magistrate Jawahabdeen remanded the fishermen till November 18. Mr. Emiret requested the Tamil Nadu Government to intervene and save them.

The fishermen from Pudukottai district were arrested last month when they were fishing in the Paruthithurai Sea and near Kattaikaadu, a Sri Lankan coastal area.
