An Indian Coast Guard ship on Tuesday rescued a fishing boat, which had encountered engine failure nearly 215 nautical miles from Karwar in Karnataka, officials said.

ICG Ship Savitribai Phule had swiftly responded to a distress call from Indian Fishing Boat (IFB) ‘Rosary’ on April 13, and, soon, established communication with the boat amid adverse sea conditions, they said.

The ship successfully rescued ‘Rosary’, which had encountered engine failure approximately 215 nautical miles from Karwar, the Defence Ministry said in a statement.

“Upon its arrival, the boarding team of the ICG ship made efforts to fix the seized engine, before the boat was rendered immobile,” it said.

“The fishing boat was, then, towed towards Karwar with the help of Coast Guard District Headquarters (Karnataka), in collaboration with the fisheries department,” the statement said.

It was handed over to IFB Shree Laxmi Narayan, which safely escorted it to Karwar port, officials said.
