Nov 29, Jaffna: Fishermen in Northern Sri Lanka today staged a protest in front of the Consulate General of India, in Jaffna demanding the Indian government to stop Indian trawlers poaching in Sri Lanka's territorial waters.

The protest was organized by the organizations of Jaffna district fishermen.

Indian mission allowed five representatives of the fishermen to enter the premises to hand over a petition while Sri Lankan military and police personnel were deployed in the premises amidst chaos.
