Relatives of these two fishermen were told Monday about their arrest through Valvettithurai Police.

Both fishermen were handed over to the Point Pedro Police by the SLN. Relatives were allowed to see these fishermen Monday night in Point Pedro police station.

Both would be produced in Point Pedro court Tuesday morning, police said.
