Sri Lankan Navy personnel today offered treatment to an Indian fisherman after he was stung by a poisonous fish while poaching in the Palk strait, PTI reported.

The boat owner Benitto told Indian fisheries department officials that the fisherman Gubendran was seen unconscious by the Navy personnel and rushed to the boat to help him.

They noticed that he had been stung by the thorn of a fish, fisheries department sources said.

They removed the thorn and gave him intravenous glucose. After he regained consciousness he was sent back to Rameswaram, the source said.
