Jan 21, Jaffna: Sri Lankan Navy today arrested 25 Indian fishermen for allegedly poaching in the country's waters, the Navy said.

The arrested fishermen will be handed over to Kankasanthurai Harbor Police for legal action, the Navy said.

The arrests come ahead of the January 27 meeting scheduled between the representatives of fishermen on both sides.

During the ministerial level meeting held between Sri Lanka's Minister of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Dr. Rajitha Senaratne and the Indian union Minster of Agriculture Sharad Pawar on January 15, the two sides agreed to release all the fishermen detained in each other's jails.
