Kochi: Naval divers on Sunday recovered the body
of one of the three fishermen who went missing after their
boat was hit by a merchant vessel of Alappuzha coast.

Two fishermen had been killed in the incident.

The body, which was found inside the sunken boat, has
been handed over to local fishermen, naval sources said here.
Search is going on to locate two other bodies.

Deep sea clearance divers had found the wreckage of the
fishing boat `Don-I` last night.

A 10-member navy clearance diving team from Southern
Naval Command here reached the location and found the wreckage
at the bottom of the sea at 47 metres. The boat`s cabin were
found damaged and fuel leakage seen at the site.

The collision in the wee hours of March 1 had shocked the
fishing community of Neendakara in Kollam district as it
happened within two weeks after two fishermen were shot dead
allegedly by marines onboard Italian merchant ship Enrica
Lexie.
