Daijiworld Media Network - Udupi (MS)

Udupi, May 7: Fishermen had verbal arguments and fist fights at Gangolli fishing port of Byndoor taluk over boats that had come from Bhatkal. Eventually, the boats that arrived from Bhatkal were sent back.

Eight boats had arrived from Bhatkal to Gangolli. Due to lockdown, arguments ensued between the fishermen of Bhatkal and Gangolli.

Fishermen from Gangolli took exception to the presence of Bhatkal fishermen in the port as coronavirus positive cases are more in Bhatkal. As argument and fist fights were going out of control, officials of fisheries department went to the fishing port of Gangolli and brought the situation under control.



Gangolli fishermen urged that till the lockdown is relaxed completely, outside fishermen should not be allowed inside Gangolli fishing port.

Giving clarification Anjanadevi, deputy director of fisheries said, "We got the information that eight boats are arriving to Gangolli port from Bhatkal. Immediately we informed the coastal protection force. We have come to know that around 20 fishermen of outstation districts and states were there on those boats. We have gathered all information about them. We have sent them back along with their boats. I will send information in this regard to all the fisheries officials of Uttara Kannada district."
