Five Sri Lankan fishermen were taken into custody by marine police in Odisha's Jagatsinghpur district Wednesday for fishing in Indian waters, an official said.
The men were fishing in the Bay of Bengal, about 170 nautical miles off the Paradip port, in violation of the country's maritime laws.
Police official Satyabrata Bhoi said the Coast Guard intercepted the vessel in which they found the Sri Lankan nationals.
