Thirteen fishermen,

stranded in mid-sea off Kerala coast for four days after their

boat developed a snag, have been rescued by the Coast Guard.

The fishermen - five from Kerala, as many from Tamil

Nadu and three from Nepal - had put out to sea in the boat

from Kanyakumari, President of the International Fishermen

Development Trust (INFIDET) P Justin Antony said here Tuesday.

While fishing, the boat developed a fault in the engine

and began to drift around 250 nautical miles off Kochi, he

said.

The Coast Guard rescued the fishermen and towed their

boat to the nearest island of Bithra in Lakshadweep, he added.
