ANI  |  Rameswaram (Tamil Nadu) [India] 

As many as 20 Indian fishermen were apprehended by the Sri Lankan Navy near the International Maritime Boundary Line (IBML) and impounded one country boat on Wednesday.

Apprehended fishermen are being kept at Sri Lanka's northwestern Thalaimannar Naval Camp, where an inquiry is taking place.

The incident occurred at 2 P.M.

The incident comes days after Prime Minister Modi Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena during the Bengal Initiative for Multi-Sectoral Technical and Economic Cooperation (BIMSTEC) 2016 on Sunday where they discussed the fishermen issue besides others matters of strategic importance.

The fishermen, primarily from Tamil Nadu, use thousands of bottom-trawlers to fish. They cross the maritime boundary between the countries in search for good catchment, often prompting arrest by the Sri Lankan Navy.
