Paradip Marine IIC Pradyumna Behera said the fishermen were brought to the harbour in another boat and admitted to atharabanki hospital.

“they sustained minor injuries and their condition is stable,” he said. In november last year, a Balasore-based trawler Jagat Janani had hit the submerged wreck of Black Rose. Five fishermen were rescued by local fishermen after the mishap. the Mongolian vessel Black Rose had capsized in Bay of Bengal on September 9, 2009.

Repeated demands to dismantle the debris of the vessel, which hampers the movement of ships, has yielded no result.
