Mon, Mar 10, 2014, 09:45 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Mar 10, Colombo: A Sri Lankan court Monday ordered to further remand 29 Indian fishermen from Tamil Nadu until March 24.

The Sri Lankan Navy arrested the 29 fishermen along with their seven trawlers on February 13 in the northern seas for crossing the International Maritime Boundary Line (IMBL) and entering into Sri Lankan waters for poaching.

Judicial Magistrate court in OOrkaval in Jaffna has extended the remand of the fishermen for a second time, according to a PTI report.

The Indian fishermen from Mandapam and Rameswaram have entered Sri Lanka's waters defying a recent agreement reached between the fishermen associations of India and Sri Lanka not to invade each other's waters.

Next round of talks between the fishermen associations of Sri Lanka and Tamil Nadu will be held Thursday (March 13) in Colombo. Tamil Nadu government has requested the release of all Indian fishermen before the talks.
