CHENNAI: One of the crew on board M V Prabhu Daya - one of the suspect ships said to have involved in the mid sea mishap that killed three Indian fishermen off Kerala waters, went over board and was later rescued by a fishing boat, Coast Guard sources said.

"Prabhu Daya was heading to Chennai from Trincomalee when the incident was reported on March 3. The ship stopped to conduct a 24 hour search operation there itself. But, another fishing boat found him and rescued him on March 4 afternoon.

Now, the rescued man is in Trincomalee. He seems to be a student," Coast Guard sources told PTI.

Sources from Tolani Shipping (Singapore) Private Limited from Mumbai told PTI that there were over 25 crew members on board when the Singapore-flagged vessel left Goa for China en route Trincomalee and Singapore with its consignment of iron ore.

However, Prabhu Daya has not established any contact with the Signal Station till 8.30 am even though it was expected to call on the port here today as part of the investigation into the assist four teams - one each from Navy, Coast Guard, Marine Merchantile Department and Director General of Shipping, looking into the March 1 incident.
