Mangaluru, Nov 14, 2018: Thirteen fishermen from Tamil Nadu drifting in high sea with a defective engine, 200 nautical miles from New Mangalore Port, were rescued by Indian Coast guard on November 12-13 night, Commander of Coast Guard S S Dasila announced.

The drifting fishing boat ’Luminous’ was first noticed by Coast Guard Dornier during its routine patrol.  The coast guard swung into act and diverted its off-shore partol vessel Vikram to rescue the fishermen. When all efforts to revive the engine failed, the fishing boat, owned by one Cleetus, was towed to the nearest Bitra Island, in the Lakshdweep,  located 100 nautical miles from New Mangalore Port, sources said.
