Kolkata: The bodies of two missing fishermen were recovered from a capsized trawler in the Bay of Bengal close off West Bengal’s Bakkhali but two to three are still missing, police said.

About 30 fishermen went missing after the trawler capsized on Friday.

“Twenty-five of them have been rescued. Two bodies have been found. Two-three others are still missing,” said a police official.

Coast Guard divers are trying to find the missing fishermen. Personnel from Namkhana police station are also at the spot supervising the rescue operations.

Fishermen have been advised not to venture into the sea due to the inclement weather triggered by a deep depression centred at west-central Bay of Bengal.
