Sri Lanka soon to release all Indian fishermen as a goodwill gesture
26 February 2018 Current Affairs: Sri Lankan government decided to release remaining 20 Indian fishermen in their custody for charges of poaching in Sri Lankan waters.

This will be the first time in recent years that no Indian fishermen are left in Sri Lankan custody.

Fishermen from India and Sri Lanka are frequently detained for illegally fishing in each other’s territorial waters since the Arabian Sea does not have a clearly defined marine border and the wooden boats lack the technology to avoid being drifting away.
