Rameswaram (TN): Sri Lankan Navy on Tuesday opened two rounds of fire in the air to warn a group of Tamil fishermen near Katchatheevu, an islet ceded by India to the island nation.

The fishermen told officials here on their return that they left the spot soon after the navalmen fired in the air.

However, even after they began fishing near Arichalmunai in Indian waters, the naval personnel came there and ordered them to move further north, they said.

The navalmen also destroyed some of their fishing nets, the fishermen told the officials.
