Over 3,000 fishermen launch indefinite fast

Sunday, 22 December 2013

Nagapattinam: Over 3,000 fishermen of various hamlets launched an indefinite fast in front of the Head Post Office here today in protest against the arrest of 107 fishermen by Sri Lankan Navy on December 11.  

 A total of 350 fishermen of Akkaraipettai and neighbouring hamlets in the district put out to sea on six boats on Dec 9 and were arrested off Kodiakarai on December 11 by the naval personnel. A total of 243 fishermen were released some hours later. The others along with their 16 boats were taken to Trincomalee in Sri Lanka, fishermen's association sources said.   

Yesterday DMK had organised a one-day strike here, demanding the release of the 107 fishermen.
