Indian Coast Guard (ICG) rescued six Sri Lankan fishermen from Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) in Andaman Sea. During the EEZ surveillance of Andaman & Nicobar Islands, the ICG Dornier located a boat adrift at approximately 190 Nautical Miles North-West of Port Blair. The boat has been identified as Sri Lankan and was reportedly in distress due to technical snag.

Acting over the situation, a rescue mission was launched from Port Blair. ICG Ship RAJKAMAL rescued the six Sri Lankan fishermen along with the boat on the early morning of 11th July.

The basic necessities were provided and their condition was observed as normal. The boat is being towed to Port Blair.
