    This should not be in the Internal Security section, because Indian fishermen are being attacked by SL Navy (foreigners).

    Anyway, I think SL Navy is crossing its limits far too often, and India needs to do something about it.

    another BS news.............. SL Navy's fast attack boats arrived and attacked them with iron rods. :rofl: I also feel that IN should deploy a ship or two to the palk strait. We will see who says the truth and who not.

    When Bangladeshis try to cross the border to come into India, the BSF shoots them dead on sight. If Tamil fishermen repeatedly keep venturing into Sri Lankan waters either due to lack of proper GPS navigation equipment or to get a bigger catch, at least the Sri Lankans are not shooting at them.

    The best way to deal with this problem would be to allow reciprocity, i.e Sri Lankan fishermen can fish in Indian waters and vice versa. But Sri Lanka may not accept this either because there may be far more Indian fishermen than Sri Lankan.

    I'm sure that India and Bangladesh have no bilateral agreement that allow migrants to cross each other's border while India and Lanka have an agreement that clearly states Tamil fishermen can legally fish in the areas around the Katchatheevu area even though it is Lankan water. Infact that and allowing access to Kachtheevu for pilgrimage and drying of nets were the three important points agreed upon when New Delhi (unilaterally) transferred the sovereignity of that island to Lanka without taking into confidence either parliament or state Govt. Guess you did not know that.

    BTW this attack happened inside Indian waters.

    According to a 1976 agreement, it seems Indian fishermen are not allowed to fish near kachatheevu. But there seems to be some confusion on the very matter of ceding of kachetheevu from India to Lanka in 1974.

    And in this case, from the original news article link, it seems the fishermen where just a few "knots South East off Kodiakarai" (sic: knot is a unit of speed). Did the SL Navy violate Indian territorial waters ?
    :confused:

    *were :tsk:

    Anyway, if there has been intrusion into territorial waters, India should respond sternly and prevent further intrusions.

    It was stupid of India to cede its territory to the Lankans. What if oil is discovered in those waters?

    The 1976 UNCLOS stopped India from even drying its fishing nets.

    The issue has to be taken up and resolved once and for all.

    Technically the area remains part of India as its not ratified by Indian parliament and a constitutional amendment to cede the territory. All pretty complicated compounded by the Lankan Tamil issue and their support by Indian Tamils which makes all sides harden their positions and not come to any settlement.

    I don't think TN should complain anymore,
    it may be the newly adopted population control policy of Delhi,

    since damelas are demons/beasts/rakshashas according to their holy religious chronicles of colombo and new Delhi, they have no other option but to do this

    In this particular case, and in the other case where 56 (IIRC) fishermen were arrested by SL Navy, Indians were well within Indian territorial waters.

    My point exactly. The ceding was not ratified, so it is still Indian territory. Why does India let a tiny SL arm twist India again and again?
