Rameswaram: Seven fishermen from Tamil Nadu were arrested on Tuesday by Sri Lankan Naval personnel for allegedly fishing in their territorial waters.

The seven, part of groups of fishermen who put out to sea from Rameswaram, have been taken to Talaimannar in northern Sri Lanka, Rameswaram Fishermen Association President T Sesuraja said.
