Killing of TN fishermen in Sri Lanka unacceptable: Jaishankar in Rajya Sabha

ET (New Delhi): India has taken up with Sri Lanka in the strongest terms the killing of Tamil Nadu fishermen in the island nation, and has made it very clear that such incidents are unacceptable, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar told Rajya Sabha on Wednesday.

“We have taken it up in strongest terms with the Sri Lankan government and this particular incident I think was particularly unacceptable and that has been made very very clear to them,” Jaishankar said.

Raising the issue through a Zero Hour mention, Tiruchi Siva of the DMK said four fishermen of Tamil Nadu were reported missing on 19 January and the Sri Lankan Navy informed that their bodies have been found in the Palk Strait four days later.
