Sri Lankan Navy allegedly damaged some nets of fishermen who were fishing near Katchatheevu in the Palk Straits, official sources said today.
Fishermen from here had to put to sea in 698 boats and were fishing in the area last night when the Lankan personnel came there in three boats.
They allegedly damaged the fishing nets of 15 boats, and threw them into the water besides warning the fishermen not to fish in the area, sources said.
