25 Sri Lankan fishermen have been arrested by the Indian Coast Guard at Karaikal in Puducherry, on charges of trespass and illegal fishing in Indian waters.

They have been handed over to the Coastal Security Group of the Tamil Nadu police.

The agency has also seized five boats and 5,000 kilograms of fish from them.

The Sri Lankan fishermen were illegally fishing in Indian waters 48 nautical miles east of Velankanni.

Recently, India and Sri Lanka had released arrested fishermen from both countries ahead of the Indo-Lankan fishermen talks that were held in Chennai.
