India should retrieve Katchatheevu island from Sri Lanka: M Karunanidhi

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi said that he and his party DMK is ready to move a resolution in the Tamil Nadu assembly to retrieve Katchatheevu island given to Sri Lanka three decades ago.

The development comes after repeated attacks on Indian fishermen by the Sri Lankan Navy around the island. He demanded that the action is necessary to protect Indian fishermen.

Katchatheevu island was given to Sri Lanka in 1974 under the terms that Indian fishermen will have access to the island and the nearby waters.
