In a statement, he said more than 3,000 fishermen of Rameswaram in 500 mechanised boats were fishing in Katchatheevu on Sunday morning when Sri Lankan Navy personnel attacked them, the New Indian Express reported.
“This should be condemned and such incidents should be stopped immediately. Tamil Nadu fishermen cannot venture into the sea if such attacks continued,” he said.
Ramadoss said the Centre should send the External Affairs Secretary to Sri Lanka to put an end to attacks by the island navy.
He also said it should ensure protection of Tamil Nadu fishermen while they are fishing around Katchatheevu island.
