Fishing Communities of Negombo, Beruwala and Dik Ovita staged a protest at the Fisheries Ministry today demanding the authorities to take immediate action to get their relatives released from the custody of Indian Coast Guards.

Indian Coast Guards, on 2 occasions last October arrested 60 Sri Lankan fishermen and seized 8 Multi-Day fishing boats alleging that they had violated the Indian maritime borders.

The relatives and owners of the fishermen and the Multi-Day fishing boats in Indian custody charged that Fisheries Minister Rajitha Senarathna has not taken any remedial measure to get their relatives and boats released from the custody of Indian security authorities.
