Navy Recovers Bodies of 10 Missing Fishermen

A statement from the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) stated that 10 of the 14 missing fishermen from the boat that perished last week had been found by the Pakistan Maritime Security Agency (PMSA) and Pakistan Navy (PN).

Thatta, the spot of the tragic boat crash, left at least fourteen fishermen missing on Wednesday. Of the about forty-five fishermen on board the Al-Asad, only 31 were saved following the disaster.

PN and PMSA began a search and rescue operation on March 5. Ten missing fishermen’s bodies were found by the rescue crew despite challenging conditions like heavy marine traffic, rough waves, and the passage of time.

The Directorate General PR of Naval Headquarters published a press release stating that PMSS Rehmat made significant progress in the search operation today after receiving information.

The bodies that had been retrieved were given to the relevant authorities. Today was the day that the four bodies that had been found earlier were buried.
“The ongoing search and rescue operation by PN and PMSA is a clear demonstration of PN’s commitment to assisting with any unfortunate incidents at sea”

The Maritime Security Agency, Pakistan Navy, and Fishermen‘s Cooperative Society coordinated their efforts to rescue individuals in challenges after other fishermen made their initial attempts. 43 fishermen were rescued due to these efforts, but two remain unaccounted for, necessitating more search and rescue attempts. They were dropped at a jetty on the Thatta shore after being fished out by another launch.
