Relatives of the fishermen say that a multi-day fishing trawler that went to sea from the Trincomalee fishing harbor has gone missing.
The missing fishing vessel is ‘Sagara Kumara 4’.
The vessel had gone to sea with seven fishermen on the 27th and no information has been received from the occupants of the vessel since the 12th, relatives said.
Assistant Director of the Fisheries Department Uditha Gamhewa stated that the fishing vessel has been arrested by the Myanmar security forces in the waters off Myanmar. However, he said that the crisis situation in the country was an obstacle to know more about it.
