Families of eight Indian fishermen, who are currently stranded in Colombo awaiting repatriation from Sri Lanka, have urged the State and Central governments to take steps to expedite their return, the Hindu reported.

The family members, who have petitioned the district authorities, are planning to observe a fast in Nagapattinam on Thursday to press the demand. According to the family members, the eight fishermen reportedly observed a fast on Tuesday in Colombo, protesting the delay over repatriation to India even after a court in Mullaitheevu released them on January 4.
