New Delhi/ Chennai, Nov 10 (ANI): BJP leader Subramanian Swamy, said on Monday (November 10) that five fishermen sentenced to death in Sri Lanka on the charge of drug trafficking will be transferred to an Indian jail.

Five Indian fishermen were arrested by the Sri Lankan Navy in 2011 on charges of smuggling drugs and on October 30, the Colombo High Court held the five fishermen guilty of drug trafficking.

The arrest of the Indian fishermen by the Sri Lankan navy has been a major topic of debate between the two nations.
