Virat Kohli and The Great Kohli caught up in Colombo Sri Lanka post India's series win on Sunday

On Tuesday, 49 fishermen from Pudukkottai district were arrested by Sri Lankan Navy when they were fishing near Neduntheevu and charged with poaching.

Expressing concern over the recurrence of attacks on Indian fishermen, Palaniswami said Sri Lankan Navy's unwarranted "display of military might against poor innocent Indian fishermen is unacceptable".

Nine Indian fishermen were apprehended by the Sri Lankan Navy along with two boats from the Palk Strait area.

Both the boats and the fishermen are missing since that time.

The Centre should exert consular level pressure on Sri Lanka to immediately secure the release of 69 Indian fishermen, including those arrested yesterday, and 125 boats from Lankan custody, he said.

The fishermen from two countries traverse poorly defined boundary in the worldwide waters as most fishing boats lack technologies to locate exact positions.

On information, Pudukottai Superintendent of Police Selvaraj visited Kottaipattinam village on Tuesday and held inquiries with some of the fishermen who managed to return to the shore.

Two fishermen were said to have jumped off one of the mechanised boats into the sea after it was reportedly hit by a naval vessel.

Palaniswami has written a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi urging him to address alarming increase in the number of attacks against Indian fishermen by Sri Lankan Navy.
