Condemning the recent arrest of five Tamil Nadu fishermen in mid-sea by the Sri Lankan Navy, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa urged the Indian Centre to take up the matter with the highest authorities of the island nation.

In a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Jayalalithaa said the boat which carried five fishermen from Tamil Nadu last week "drifted ashore" due to an engine snag following which they were arrested by the Sri Lankan Navy.

She once again reiterated the need to restore the traditional fishing rights of their fishermen in the Palk Bay by annulling the Indo-Sri Lankan agreements of 1974 and 1976" ceding Katchatheevu to the island nation.

She sought PM Modi's personal intervention to secure the release of 29 fishermen and 94 fishing boats at the earliest.
