A fisherman from Karaikal was injured when he was fired upon allegedly by the Sri Lankan Navy, about 11 nautical miles off the Kodiakarai coast, early on Thursday.

Shenbagam (40) of Kilinjamedu was shot in the back while steering one of two mechanised boats in which a group of fishermen ventured into the sea last Saturday. A few others escaped, the fishermen said in a police complaint later.
