[PTI, Thursday, 1 October 2009 19:38 No Comment]

Two mechanised boats of Tamil Nadu fishermen were badly damaged in an attack allegedly by Sri Lankan Navalmen in mid sea off Dhanushkodi coast early today.

Fisheries department officials said the fishermen had lodged a complaint with them, saying the Sri Lankan Navalmen "deliberately" collided their vessel against the two boats.

While one boat sank, another suffered extensive damage.

Four occupants of the sunk boat were saved by fellow fishermen and brought to Thonikarai and Pamban coast. One mechanised fishing boat which had gone in search of the boats also had sunk in the rough sea, though the occupants managed to escape, the officials said.
