It has been revealed that 157 alleged Sri Lankan illegal migrants are detained in the middle of the ocean by the Australian coastal guards.

The  Australian courts stated today that they are detained in an Australian Coastal Guard vessel and only taken out during their meal time.

Previously their count was reported as 153.

These illegal migrants who set off from a port in South India, were arrested near Christmas Island 3 weeks ago.

In order to hold talks regarding these asylum seekers, Australian Immigration Minister Scott Morrison will proceed to India today.
