Seven Tamil Nadu fishermen were arrested on Sunday by Sri Lankan naval personnel off Nedunthivu for allegedly fishing in the island nation's territorial waters.

The fishermen claimed they had crossed the International Maritime Boundary Line due to strong winds and rough seas.

However the Lankan naval men charged them with poaching in their territory, seized their boat and arrested them, fisheries department officials said.
