The navalmen also took their three boats along with them, according to information reaching Joint Director of Fisheries Department, Subburaj.

He said that the fishermen from Akkaraipettai in Nagapattinam district, along with their boats, had been taken to an army camp in Trincomallee, adding, they have been detained.
