7 more Bangladeshi fishermen rescued from Odisha
Berhampur: Seven more fishermen from Bangladesh, who were in their defunct boat inside the deep sea, were rescued by the local fishermen of Podampeta in Odisha`s Ganjam district on Saturday.
While one of them was admitted at the hospital at Chhatrapur due to fever, the condition of other Bangladeshi nationals is good, said inspector in-charge marine police station Ashok Kumar Parida.
As many as ten fishermen from Bangladesh were rescued by the local fishermen from the deep sea yesterday.
The fishermen from Bangladesh were stuck inside the sea, when their boat developed a snag. The local fishermen from Podampeta detected them in trouble and were brought ashore. All of them stayed in the marine police station at Arjipalli, while administration provided foods, sources said.
"We have already taken up the matter with the home department and trying to send them back as soon as possible," said a senior officer.
