They were later handed over to the Indian Deputy High Commission at Jaffna, Rameswaram Fishermen’s Association representative P Sesuraja said.

During an India-Lanka ministerial-level talk on fishermen held in Colombo earlier this week, it was decided that Sri Lanka will release 51 Indian fishermen, while three of their Lankan counterparts will be freed by India.
