  • The island is used by fishermen to dry their nets.
  • During the British rule, it was administered jointly by India and Sri Lanka.
  • In the early 20th century, Sri Lanka claimed territorial ownership over the islet, so in 1974 India ceded the island to Sri Lanka, through a joint agreement.
    • Two years later through another accord, India further gave up its fishing rights in the region.
