Three Tamil Nadu fishermen who were arrested by the Navy on Sunday (17) have been remanded till January 29 by the Kayts Magistrate’s Court today.

Indian media reports stated that the three fishermen were from Kottaipattinam in Tamil Nadu and were arrested off Nedunthivu yesterday morning.

Arrest comes soon after Sri Lanka’s decision to release all Indian fishermen as goodwill gesture towards the Thai Pongal festival celebrated last week.
