Mangaluru: Congress MLA UT Khadar on Tuesday informed that the helicopter that was supposed to come from Kochi for rescue hasn’t taken off due to adverse weather conditions.

Addressing pressperson Khader said, “Even if the helicopter takes off now, we don’t have much time before daylight ends. We are seeing if search operations can continue through the night because 24-36 hours is crucial.”

Meanwhile, teams of National Disaster Response Force, Coast Guard, Home Guard, fire services and coastal police have been pressed into service to trace Siddhartha.

Local fisherman, along with their boats, have also joined in the search operations.
