The Navy arrested three Indian nationals attempting to illegally migrate to Sri Lanka on a dinghy, along with two more suspects, the Navy media unit said.
The dinghy was seen in the sea area north of Talaimannar by a naval craft patrolling the area.
The Indians and two Sri Lankans were arrested by the Navy. Among those detained were a 33 year old woman, a 07 year old girl and two Sri Lankans who ferried the Indians on the dinghy.
Those arrested were administered first aid and were handed over to the Talaimannar Police. (Colombo Gazette)
