When the Mulaitheevu people informed the police had as who gave the authority to bring the boat to shore.
While the people living in a 74Km long area from Kokkulai to Peparapiddy are struggling for their livelihood, the authorities are not taking any action to stop the illegal fishing and they are not accepting any capture by the fishermen as above. This is the pathetic state of the Mulaitheevu Fishermen, he said.
