    As long as they are let off after a speedy detention, no problem from my side.
    Or Get Indian CG to patrol those waters, and there should be a on sea resolution.

    Coast Guard is already there in Rameswaram. Just that they dont usually respond to distress calls in time .Cant fault those guys, they are just doing their duty. Unless orders come from higher ups in New Delhi, which in turn must come from Central Govt, they cant do anything.

    No need for GPS. Tamil fishermen are LEGALLY ALLOWED to fish in waters around Katchatheevu (from where they have been arrested). So central Govt must first kindly,sincerely and humbly request the lankans to stop arresting Indian fishermen for doing no wrong.

    Or she should allow the fishermen to arm themselves ( a long standing demand from them) to defend themselves.

    You want it to become a bloodbath now? :fp:

    Maybe after LTTE, it will give rise to LFTE? Liberated Fishermen of Tamil Elam?

    What kind of arms they want? The ones which can stand against SL Navy? Civilians fighting against armed forces? Looks like inane idea to me.

    Rather Coast Guard should be made to extend duty or device new resolution around fishing waters.

    The Coast Guard must induct more vessels, and these vessels must coordinate with the local fishermen, and escort them. If an Indian Coast Guard vessel is nearby, SL Navy will not be able to arrest these fishermen. Moreover, Coast Guard should be given the freedom to respond to distress calls immediately, with local Coast Guard officials empowered to respond without having to seek approval.

    Looks like greedy Tamil Fishermen, on the instigation of the missionaries, are deliberately violating the territorial waters of SL.

    mate before calling the innocent Tamil fishermen greedy we should look at the other side of the coin.the SL navy is not known to be a "holier than thou" organization worldwide,their hands are pretty much soaked with innocent HINDU Tamil people blood!
    the Tamil fishermen have every right to fish around the island of Katchatheevu as technically its an Indian island which was gifted to the lankans in 1974 and afaik,there is no ban on fishing near this island as far as the Indo-SL accord of '74 is concerned.
    so the thing which we should probably do now is to deploy our Coast Guard near that island and we should ensure that these types of incident don't take place in the future and if required we should intimidate SL to stop this nuisance!

    That is the point! Indians are NOT allowed to fish there. They were allowed access to the island based on '74 accord. However as per the '76 agreement, Indians are not supposed to even go to the island without a visa, let alone fish in its waters. The fishermen keep pin pricking by entering sovereign SL territory and then raise hue and cry when they get arrested.

    These missionary brainwashed fishermen are anything but innocent! Look at the map below.

    The agreement itself. Look at Article 5.

    Island ceding not ratified by Parliament, so technically it is Indian territory and Indians may fish there, IMO.

    Why should both parties stay away? It was Indian territory, and it's transfer has not yet been ratified by the Indian Parliament, so shouldn't status quo be maintained?
