June 20, Colombo (LNW): Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M K Stalin has made a fervent appeal to the central government of India, urging immediate diplomatic intervention to secure the release of Indian fishermen and their impounded boats from Sri Lankan custody, Press Trust of India (PTI) reported.

In a letter addressed to External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar, CM Stalin highlighted the recent incident involving the Sri Lankan Navy’s capture of four Indian fishermen, according to PTI report.
