CG orders probe into killing of youth
Chennai: The Indian Coast Guard has ordered an inquiry into the May 10 incident, in which a youth was killed when a vessel allegedly hit a boat off Pamban Coast, but maintained that it was not aware of any of its vessels hitting the boat.
"As far as the Coast Guard is concerned, we are not aware of any of our vessels hitting it (the boat which sank). But we have ordered an inquiry....," Vice Admiral MP Muralidharan, Director General of the Indian Coast Guard said.
Talking to reporters here after commissioning of the Coast Guard’s new in-shore patrol vessel (IPV) ICGS Rajtarang, he said a high level inquiry was in progress and he was in touch with the Tamil Nadu government officials.
"The moment the inquiry is over, we will let them (state government officials) know. I will inform the Chief Secretary," he said.
Taking serious note of the incident, in which 19-year-old Calvin Miller drowned, Chief Minister Jayalalithaa had directed her Chief Secretary to write to the Coast Guard to conduct a probe.
While Miller drowned, Santhia, Aruldass, Sinnasi and Devoss in the boat were rescued by fishermen of another boat in the sea.
