Tamil Nadu Government Pleader Pugazhendi said 150 FIRs had
been registered regarding attacks on the fishermen, though some cases had been dropped. He said the cases had been registered based on complaint forwarded by the fisheries department on the recommendation of the Coast Guard and it was not possible for the state police to protect the fishermen in the sea. The Judges rejected a plea by the petitioners, including city based advocate Stalin, for providing guns to fishermen. "This court cannot give such directions. That will amount to court asking to wage a war." Petitioner's advocate Peter Ramesh Kumar said incidents of attacks had taken place in Indian waters even after court directions to give protection to fishermen. The judges also asked details of cases filed against those who crossed the IMBL and adjourned the hearing to September 28. PTI SSN VS NTR
