Australia is verifying the genuineness of the asylum claims of the 157 Sri Lankan Tamils who had left Puducherry by boat.

The boat was intercepted by Australian authorities in June.

The migrants are now lodged in detention centres on Nauru Island in the South Pacific.

Around 1,200 people were believed to have died in sea while trying to enter Australia in recent years.
