Aug 20, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Department of Immigration and Emigration says 27 Indian fishermen who had arrived in the island from India on tourist visas and engaged in employment in Jaffna, were arrested for violating their visa conditions.

The 27 Indians, including five women, were arrested by the Intelligence and Investigation Unit of the Immigration and Emigration Department during a special raid on Sunday.

Immigration officials said Intelligence and Investigation Unit was on the lookout for people overstaying their visas in the Northern Province.

It has been reported that one of the 27 Indians is a science graduate and 19 of them have been engaged in fortune telling in Jaffna.
