As of now, not a single fishing boat at sea is in any kind of danger. Both Swarna Jyothi and Ganga Ganesh had six crew members each, all of whom are now safe, and back home. These boats were rescued after the India Coast Guard Service's Amartya managed to save MA Maheel and Raj Kiran off the Karwar coast, two boats with nine members on board each," he said.

For us, it is incredibly satisfying that we were able to respond to the situation. At this juncture, I would like to express my gratitude to the fisherfolk who played an instrumental role in securing the safety of their brethren."
