Jan 06, Trincomalee: A Sri Lankan court Monday ordered to further remand 111 Indian fishermen from Tamil Nadu arrested by the Sri Lanka Navy until January 20.

The fishermen of Nagapattinam were arrested by the Sri Lankan Navy on December 11 for allegedly crossing the International Maritime Boundary Line (IMBL) and entering into Sri Lankan waters off Foul Point in Trincomalee for poaching. The Navy also seized 15 of their trawlers.

The Trincomalee Magistrate Court extended the remand of the fishermen when they were produced in court today, a representative of the Indian fishermen has told PTI.
