Sun, Mar 30, 2014, 08:18 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Mar 30, Mannar: Sri Lanka Navy Sunday escorted 19 Tamil Nadu fishermen, who were released from Sri Lankan custody recently, and handed them over to the Indian Coast Guard with their 4 boats.

Sri Lanka Navy Inshore Patrol Crafts P 223 and P 212 had escorted the fishermen and handed over to the Indian Coast Guard Ship "Abheek" at the International Maritime Boundary Line off Mannar on 30th March.

Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa ordered the release of all 98 Indian fishermen in Sri Lankan custody as a goodwill gesture following India's abstention of vote for the UN resolution against Sri Lanka.

Meanwhile, Indian media reported that Sri Lankan Navy personnel patrolling the waters near the Katchatheevu Island today not only allowed the Indian fishermen from Tamil Nadu to fish but also offered them soft drinks and sweets.
