New Navy Commander Assumes Duties

Jan 15, 2011 7:55:33 AM - thesundayleader.lk

The new Commander of the Sri Lanka Navy, Rear Admiral S. Dissanayake assumed duties at the Navy Headquarters today (15).

After assuming duties Commander Dissanayake has said that India can provide proof, if they have any to show that Sri Lanka Navy personnel have killed Indian fishermen in the alleged shooting incident.

Following the allegation that Sri Lankan Navy personnel had shot Indian fishermen, the Indian government last week summoned Sri Lankan High Commissioner in New Delhi Prasad Kariyawasam and asked for an explanation on the incident.
However, the Sri Lankan Navy has denied the accusation saying the Navy personnel had only assisted the fishermen to return into Indian waters.
