Navy rescues four Indian fishermen in Kachchativu seas

The Navy yesterday rescued four Indian fishermen aboard a distressed trawler in the seas off Kachchativu, Jaffna.

The fishing trawler and its crew encountered this unfortunate incident as a result of prevailing rough sea condition.

A naval craft belonging to the Northern Naval Command had spotted a trawler which was adrift, while patrolling in northern seas this morning. Subsequently, the naval craft had reached the distressed trawler and rendered it technical assistance needed. Besides, the Navy also provided food and drink to refresh the group of fishermen, who were already fatigued from hours of stay in rough seas.

The four Indian fishers are from 37 to 60 years of age and they, along with their fishing trawler, were handed over to the Jaffna Fisheries Inspector for investigations.
