Honnavar: A fishing boat belonging to Gangoli sank in the confluence of the river Shravati and the sea, causing severe losses to the boat's owner Shivaram Sheryan.

The boat capsized when it was returning to Kasargod port after fishing in the deep sea for the past two days. Due to the sinking of the boat, a large quantity of fish and other equipment was lost to the sea.

Fishing boats coming to this confluence often meet such accidents. Fishermen also complained that government officials are not paying attention to the problems they face in returning and anchoring boats, which cost boat owners every year.
