Rameswaram (Tamil Nadu) [India], Apr 22 (ANI): Indian Coast Guard on Monday apprehended four Indian fishermen from the 4th islet in Rama Setu near Dhanushkodi in Rameswaram Island, officials said. 

They were later released after being interrogated at the Mandapam Coast Guard station. 
It is worth mentioning that in the aftermath of the serial bomb blasts in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday, Indian Coast Guard (ICG) and police have stepped security along the coastal lines to prevent any possible infiltration from Sri Lanka via sea route. Over 250 people were killed while more than 400 people sustained injuries in the blast.
Also, police have stepped up security in all churches in coastal areas including fish landing centre near Danushkodi.
Further details are awaited. (ANI)
