The fishermen issue continues to be a major source of aggravation in the ties between the two nations as Sri Lanka accuses Indian fishermen of straying into its territorial waters, while the latter asserts of fishing in their traditional areas.

SL Navy personnel assisted the Sri Lanka Coast Guard to arrest three Indian fishermen along with a fishing trawler poaching in Sri Lankan waters North-West of Karainagar on Saturday.

The fishermen were brought to Kankesanthurai and will be handed over to the officials of the Department of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (Jaffna).
