Woman attempting to come via boat to Sri Lanka apprehended

A woman has been arrested by the Tamil Nadu police while attempting to travel illegally by boat to Sri Lanka.

Investigations have revealed that the woman, from Mulativu, has travelled to Chennai by air in June 2018  and has spent three years at a relative’s residence.

Attempting to travel to Sri Lanka via boat, she has contacted a smuggler who has brought her to a sand dune near Arichal Munai where she’d waited eight hours for a boat from Sri Lanka to arrive, according to Indian media.

The Tamil Nadu police were alerted by Indian fishermen, who arrested her and commenced investigations.
