The injured have been identified as 53-year-old Makina of Thangachimadam, 56-year-old Rajendran of Netaji Nagar and 51-year-old Thangam of Rameswaram. Let us tell you that the Sri Lankan Navy often tries to rein in Indian fishermen by accusing them of violating the maritime area.

Fishermen’s Association leader Antony Dominic said that the Sri Lankan Navy is deliberately targeting Indian fishermen from Tamil Nadu. He said that its purpose is to create an atmosphere of fear among the fishermen going to sea. According to reports, Rajendran, injured in the attack by the Sri Lankan Navy, is in critical condition. It is being told that he has suffered a head injury. The three fishermen injured in the attack are being treated at Rameswaram General Hospital. Dominic said that the Sri Lankan Navy had chased the fishermen away from the sea near Katchatheevu.

Let us tell you that Sri Lanka faced a major economic crisis in the year 2022, due to which the basic needs of the people of the country were not being met. During that time of crisis, India had helped its neighbor wholeheartedly and provided all the essential items besides food grains. Many big leaders of Sri Lanka have also praised this generosity of India from many platforms. However, looking at the action of the Sri Lankan Navy, it seems that this neighbor of India is slowly forgetting its old days. In fact, even before this, such actions have come to the fore by the Sri Lankan Navy.
