Rameswaram (TN): The body of another fisherman, one of the four who had gone missing at sea, was today found washed ashore at Solaikudi near here, police said.

The highly decomposed body was identified as that of Anthony, hailing from Rameswaram, missing since April 2.

On April 6, the body of fisherman Victus was found washed ashore at Nedunthivu along the Lankan coast. The body was buried at Jaffna two days ago.

Two more fishermen are still missing.

Fishermen suspect that the boat in which the four had ventured into the sea was sunk by Lankan navalmen after killing them, police said.

The postmortem could reveal the facts, they said.

Meanwhile, the Tamil Nadu government today announced Rs five lakh each as relief to the next of kin of the four fishermen.
