The fishing boat IFB King's engine failed, leaving it stranded in the Arabian Sea since February 5, according to a social media post from the Indian Coast Guard. On the boat were eleven members of the crew. The Indian Coast Guard responded quickly to the fishermen's request for assistance, sending its ship Vikram to the location. The fisherman was lost in the middle of the ocean 280 nautical miles west of Lakshadweep's Minicoy island. The Indian Coast Guard vessel Vikram pulled the boat up onto Minicoy Island's shore. The Arabian Sea is home to Lakshadweep's Minicoy Island.
Apart from monitoring the Indian borders at sea, the Coast Guard is also playing an important role in relief and rescue operations. Only last month, the Coast Guard rescued a boat stranded in Kakdwip, West Bengal. There were 182 pilgrims on board the boat. The Coast Guard rescued all the pilgrims safely. All the pilgrims were going to Kakdweep to participate in the Ganga Sagar Fair.
