Jagatsinghpur: At least 13 fishermen reportedly went missing at the sea off Paradip coast in Odisha’s Jagatsinghpur district.
According to sources, two boats – Kinara and Debilaxmi, ventured out for fishing five days ago with 13 fishermen on board and went missing 163 km off the coast towards Digha.
After failed attempts to get in touch with the fishermen, the owners of the two boats wrote to the officials of Coast Guard Headquarters and Marine Police to initiate a rescue operation.
