Sri Lanka Navy prevents 04 Indian fishing vessels with 40 individuals

Sri Lanka Navy has prevented 40 individuals aboard four Indian fishing vessels, from their attempt to enter into Sri Lankan waters on Saturday, 29th May 2021.

In a special patrol conducted to prevent people from entering Sri Lankan waters by illegal means in the seas north of Mannar, the North Central Naval Command managed to intercept the 04 Indian fishing vessels along with the 40 individuals.

Sri Lanka Navy has stepped up security in the island’s waters by increasing 24-hour patrols, as there is a risk of the surge in the transmission of COVID 19 pandemic in the country due to attempts made by foreigners to arrive into the island via sea routes.

The Navy said it remains vigilant and continues to increase surveillance in Sri Lankan waters to prevent illegal immigrants from entering the country by sea.
