Over 500 arrested for attempting to migrate illegally! | Breaking News

The Navy has taken into custody and initiated legal action against more than 500 illegal migrants from Sri Lankan waters during the past six months of this year.

The Navy also said that due to the current economic crisis in the country, there has been an increase in the number of people traveling by sea to India and Australia over the past few months.

Meanwhile, most of the migrants arrested so far have been identified as residents of the Jaffna, Mullaitivu, Mannar, Kilinochchi and Vavuniya districts in the Northern Province.
