Indian fishermen were attacked off Katchatheevu islet on Saturday night allegedly by Sri Lankan naval personnel, who opened fire in the air, forcing them to return to shore, the PTI news agency reproted. 

The naval personnel also pelted stones and bottles at them, fisheries department officials have said.

Murugan, one of the fishermen who returned to shore, told officials that the naval personnel intercepted their boats off the islet and attacked them with bottles and fuel wood.

However as these were thrown from a distance, none of them suffered any injuries nor were their boats damaged, he said.
