A labourer of a fishing  canoe feared drowned while his fellow fisherman  was rescued when the vessel  capsized  while  coming back to the Baina shore on Sunday.

The harbour coastal security police said  that a group of ten fishermen, including canoe owner Naga Ganpa Tandel, had ventured into the Arabian Sea at around 6 am from the Baina seashore.

However, while coming back the canoe ‘Ashish’ capsized due to rough weather conditions. Two of the ten labourers fell into the sea at around 9 am when the canoe was some 20 metres away from the Baina seashore.

The other canoe
labourers  managed to  rescue  one  of the fishermen fallen into the sea, while the  other went missing.

The missing fisherman has been identified as Shrikant Yadav (25), who is a resident of Katem-Baina but hails from Chhattisgarh.

Tandel, a resident of Katem-Baina,  has  filed a missing complaint about his labourer.

The harbour coastal security police,  the Coast Guard and lifeguards of  the Drishti Special Response Services conducted intensive search and rescue operation to trace the missing fisherman, but  failed to locate him till late Sunday evening.

The search and rescue operation was stopped owing to low visibility,  but would be resumed on Monday morning.
