Indian Fishermen Attacked Allegedly By Lanka Navy Over Trespass, 1 Hurt
Chennai: A group of Indian fishermen were attacked allegedly by Sri Lankan Navy personnel last night for allegedly trespassing into the island nation's territorial waters. One of the fishermen has been injured.
The fishermen have denied that they trespassed into Lankan waters. Stones were allegedly thrown and their nets were torn.

Authorities said there is no formal complaint yet and that they are investigating the incident. "All the fishermen have returned to the shore. None has given a complaint," a senior officer told NDTV.

Foreign Office resists release of files on support for UK mercenaries in Sri Lanka - The Guardian

The book details how KMS, at the suggestion of Thatcher-era politicians, trained a Sri Lankan police unit called the Special Task Force, which used ruthless methods during the civil war, including a 1987 massacre at a prawn farm in Kokkadicholai, eastern Sri Lanka, in which 85 Tamil civilians died.

It also allegedly provided or flew helicopter gunships that took part in massacres. One of the diplomats who appears to have been aware of KMS’s role was Sir Anthony Parsons, a former British ambassador to Tehran and later a part-time special adviser to Margaret Thatcher. He died in 1996.
The UK was concerned that many of the Tamil separatists had communist sympathies and would be open to Russian influence.

The West's dirty tricks in SL supporting both ends against the middle has yet to be told in full. The Israelis did the same,selling fast craft to the SLN while training the LTTE how to blow them up!
The current virulently pro-PRC GOSL of the Rajapakse dy-nasty, holds grave repercussions for India militarily as the PRC cements its foothold in the island into a permanent presence.
