A fishing boat, carrying 13 fisher of us, capsized round 10 nautical miles from Gorai coast on Tuesday.
Though 11 fisher of us had been rescued by one other boat, two individuals are still missing.
Senior inspector Sanjeev Narkar of Gorai police station said the incident occurred round 2 pm and the Indian Coast Guard (ICG) and Indian Navy authorities have been knowledgeable for search and rescue operations of the 2 missing fishermen.
“A rescue boat has been dispatched for search and rescue operations,” said RK Singh, commandant, ICG.
A fishing boat, Lucky Star, carrying 13 fisher of us from Gorai, went into the ocean for fishing last Saturday.
While returning the boat capsized round 10 nautical miles away from the coast on Tuesday afternoon.
Another fishing boat, God King, from Uttan rescued the 11 fisher of us, Narkar said.
“Perhaps, the boat capsized because of the choppy waters. It could be a technical snag as well. We will ascertain the cause after we record the rescued fisher folks’ statement,” Narkar added.
