Iran releases 15 Indian fishermen: Sushma Swaraj
External affairs minister Sushma Swaraj on Monday said that Iran has released 15 Indian fishermen who were detained with their Bahraini boats last year.
“I am happy to inform that Iran has released our 15 fishermen from Tamil Nadu. They were detained with their 3 Bahraini boats,” Swaraj said in a tweet.
She also thanked the Indian Embassy in Tehran, appreciating their “good work” for facilitating the release.
The fishermen, working for some Baharainians, were detained for entering the Iranian waters without permission.
