Colombo: Fourteen Indian fishermen were arrested by the Sri Lankan Navy on charges of poaching, officials said on Sunday.

The Navy confirmed the arrest during its patrol to prevent the trespassing of Indian poachers and smuggling activities in their territorial waters, reports Xinhua news agency.

It has also seized three trawlers from the fishermen.

Fishermen of two countries are often jailed for accidentally crossing into each other’s territory.

The fishermen from the two neighbours traverse poorly defined boundary in the international waters as most fishing boats lack the technology to locate its exact positions.
