Mangaluru, Dec 02, 2020: The bodies of two more fishermen who went missing after the Shree Raksha Purse-seine boat capsized off the Ullal coast, have been traced on Wednesday morning. The bodies of two others were traced on Tuesday night. With this so far the bodies of four out of the six missing fishermen have been traced.
The bodies have been shifted to Wenlock Hospital. The skin of the face of the deceased is completely peeled off making them unrecognisable, reportedly due to fish bite.
The fishing boat with about 25 fishermen was on its return journey when it capsized nearly 15 nautical miles off the Ullal coast reportedly after hitting a boulder.
