The fishermen had put out to sea in 641 mechanised boats yesterday and were fishing near Katchatheevu in the Palk Strait when Sri Lankan Naval men rounded up ten boats last night, Rameswaram Fishermen Association President P Sesuraja told reporters here.

The Lankan Naval personnel cut the fishing nets of the ten boats and asked them to go back, following which all the boats returned to the shores this morning, he said.
