“11 fishermen of Karaikal were among the 31 Indian fishermen apprehended on July 31 at Mullai Theevu along with their mechanised fishing boats for allegedly transgressing into the Sri Lankan waters. These fishermen were languishing in jail as their remand has been extended up to September 27,” he said in a letter to Prime Minister.
   
“I request you that immediate diplomatic initiatives be taken for the release of the 11 fishermen and restoration of their mechanised boats at the earliest,” Rangasamy said in his letter.
