NDTV Published on Jan 22, 2019
The Coast Guard and the Navy are still searching for a fishing trawler with over 100 Indians that set off from Munambam port in Kerala's rural Ernakulam to an unknown destination over ten days ago. "The boat is carrying around 100-120 people, including residents of Delhi and second-generation Tamil migrants. Upon being questioned, a few people told us that their destination is New Zealand. That, however, cannot be taken at face value. Our investigation is still on," a senior Kerala police officer told NDTV. He, however, did not rule out the possibility of the travellers trying to get to another country with a better standard of living.
