The Sri Lanka Navy yesterday intercepted two Indian fishing trawlers in Talaimannar. They took into custody 10 fishermen. On examination of the trawlers the Navy found only fishing gear. The fishermen were handed over to the Police for further investigation.
The Navy was on extra alert yesterday following information that Tamil Nadu politician P. Nedummaran was to cross over to Jaffna from Rameswaram ferrying food and medicine to the people of Jaffna, which Tamil Nadu newspapers described as political gimmick. (NP)
