“We have deployed PCR vans and also alerted the coastal police,” said Sawant and added that fishermen venturing into the sea have also been asked to keep a close watch on the movement of vessels. “Night patrolling has also been intensified in all the coastal areas of Mormugao like Khariwada, Vasco, Baina, Bogmalo, Khollant, Cansaulim, Velsao, Majorda and other areas,” she said.
