Fifty One TN Fishermen Released


51 fishermen from Tamil Nadu who were in Sri Lankan prisons have been released today.

The fishermen were released following a decision taken during a high-level meeting between India and Sri Lanka earlier this week.

According to the Media Spokesperson for the Ministry of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources, the fishermen were released after they were produced before court this morning.

India and Sri Lanka held ministerial-level talks on their long-standing dispute over Indian fishermen engaging in fishing activities in Sri Lankan waters.
