The navy says that it hopes to inform the Australian High Commission with regard to the fishing trawler called 'Thejaan Putha' that had gone missing in the Kudaawella sea.
Navy media spokesman Commander Kosala Varnakulasuriya told our news team that action would be taken to brief the Australian Navy and the Air Force about this.
Recently a group of fishermen who set sale from the Kudaawella fishing harbour in Matara was attacked in the sea and their modern fishing trawler was whisked away from them.
A group of persons who had carried out the attack had got into another trawler, attacked five of them in the other trawler, thrown them into the sea and fled taking with them the modern trawler.
We also contacted Police Media Spokesperson SSP Prishantha Jayakody to find out regarding the latest investigations into the incident.
