Satellite photos catch Indian fishermen in Lankan waters

The Fisheries Ministry has released satellite photographs that clearly show the presence of Indian fishermen in Sri Lankan waters.

The pictures taken by the Sri Lanka Air Force track the movements of the Indian fishermen, who are first seen fishing within India’s territorial waters, then entering Sri Lankan waters by late afternoon, and completely crossing over into local waters after midnight.

These pictures have been shown to the Indian Government as evidence to support allegations by local fishermen that Tamil Nadu fishermen had intruded into Sri Lanka’s territorial waters.(The red dots indicate the presence of Indian boats)
