In the wake of arrests of Indian fishermen by Sri Lankan Navy, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking laying down a time-bound action plan to achieve a “long-term, permanent solution to the problem and also to put in place a strong and robust diplomatic response”.

In her letter to Modi, Jayalalithaa cited the arrest of 73 fishermen by Lankan Navy on Saturday in two separate incidents.

Requesting that the issue be raised with the highest level on the Sri Lankan side to secure the fishermen’s release, she said she is confident that with the Government of India and the Government of Tamil Nadu acting in concert, it would be possible to achieve a permanent solution to this issue.

Sri Lankan Navy on two separate incidents arrested 73 Indian fishermen for allegedly crossing the International Maritime Boundary line and fishing in the country's waters.

Navy spokesman Kosala Warnakulasuriya said that 41 Indian fishermen were arrested off the coast of Thalaimannar in the north while another 32 fishermen were arrested off the Delft Islands day before yesterday.
