Rameswaram: Six Sri Lankan refugees were feared drowned after their boat capsized when they were on way to the Indian coast early this morning, official sources said.
The boat carrying at least 12 persons capsized near Indham Theedai (fifth isle) while it was heading towards Dhanushkodi, they said.

Six persons on the boat were saved by the Coast Guard personnel and brought to Mandapam coast, they said.

Hundreds of Sri Lankan refugees have been arriving at the Rameswaram coast recently following escalation of violence in the island nation.
