Dec 17, Colombo: Indian authorities have released another three Sri Lankan fishing trawlers seized by the Indian Coast Guard for trespassing into the Indian territorial waters.

Strengthening the maritime bond between the two countries the trawlers were repatriated to Sri Lanka on Saturday (16), with the assistance of Sri Lanka Coast Guard, the Navy Media Unit said.

The repatriation of trawlers took place at the International Maritime Boundary Line (IMBL) north of Kankasanthurai.

A Patrol Vessel of the Sri Lanka Coast Guard and the Indian Coast Guard Ships 'Abbakka' and 'Ameya' were deployed for this mission. The fishing trawlers which were escorted to the Kankasanthurai harbor, were handed over to the Assistant Director of Fisheries in Jaffna. These fishing trawlers had been arrested by India in 2015.
