Tamil Nadu fishermen accuse Lankan Navy of pelting stones at them

ANI  |  Colombo [Sri Lanka] 

The Sri Lankan Navy has been accused by the fishermen of attacking them when they were fishing near the territorial waters of the island nation on Tuesday night.

Colombo Page quoted media reports as saying that a fisherman from Pamban had suffered head injury, while another fisherman escaped unhurt when the Sri Lankan Navy personnel allegedly pelted stones against them after opening fire in the air when they were fishing on the high seas near island.

The Sri Lankan Navy attacked the fishermen for poaching in its country's waters.

When the Sri Lankan Navy opened fire in the air and started pelting stones, the fishermen started pulling the nets with the help of winches as they could not afford to cut away the nets and withdraw immediately.

While pulling the net, a fisherman got hit by a stone and suffered a deep gash on his head.

After the alleged attack, all fishermen returned to the shore.
