Rameswaram (TN): A fishing boat was damaged

it near Katchatheevu in the Palk straits when their
counterparts from Tamil Nadu were fishing, police said on Tuesday.

The boat`s stern caught fire which was put out
immediately, police said, adding the attack took place last

Fishermen alleged that earlier Sri Lankan Naval men in
the vicinity had asked them not to venture into Lankan
territorial waters.

About 600 fishing boats from here were fishing in the
area and most returned with small catch, they said.
