Antony regrets mishap involving Coast Guard vessel
Panaji: Defence Minister A K Antony on Saturday regretted the collision between an Indian Coast Guard ship and a fishing trawler, off the coast of Goa in April that left six fishermen dead.
"It was a very sad and unfortunate incident...We are sorry about it," Antony said, talking to reporters in Panaji.
Indian Coast Guard`s patrol vessel ICGS Vaibhav had dashed against `Sea Massiah`, a trawler, 13 nautical miles from the Agonda coast of Canacona taluka in South Goa. Six of the 23 crew of the trawler were killed in the mishap.
The Defence Ministry would do everything to support the families of the dead fishermen and action would be taken against Coast Guard officials after enquiry is completed, Antony said.
The Coast Guard has already ordered a `board of enquiry` while the Yellow Gate police station in Mumbai has also registered a case.
