Sri Lankan coast guards seizes Indian vessel with Myanmar’s Rohingya Muslim refugees

Colombo: Sri Lankan coastguards have seized an Indian fishing boat and detained two Indians and 30 Rohingya refugees, including 14 children after the vessel illegally entered the country’s territorial waters, authorities said on Sunday.

They were detained off the coast of Kankesanturai in the country’s northern Jaffna peninsula, the navy said.

“Sri Lankan coast guards were observing the International Maritime Boundary Line. They found this Indian fishing boat with unusually large group of people,” navy spokesman Chaminda Walakuluge said.

The people held include seven men, seven women and 16 children, besides the two Indian crew.
