Krishna dials Colombo, calls for Indian fishermen's release

"I am hopeful that the Sri Lankan government will take all the necessary steps to release all Indian fishermen,” Krishna told reporters here after telephonic conversation with Peiris.
"Both governments must sort out the issue amicably,” he said.

A total of 142 Indian fishermen have been arrested by the Sri Lankan Navy over the last few days for allegedly straying into the country's waters, creating a massive furore in Tamil Nadu.
