Line (IMBL) in the high seas after they sailed into the sea on Wednesday night.

island nation and also seized their boat.

T. Dinesh, R. Muniyasamy, S. Arul Pritson and O.Jan Simon.
Fishing boats from the Rameswaram island had not ventured into the sea since November 30

The arrest of eight fishermen on the first day of their entering the sea has caused anxiety among
