trideviMangaluru : A day after coast guard rescued crew of a stranded dredger trapped in high waves in the sea, the vessel ‘Tridevi Prem’ sank at New Mangalore Port Trust here on Tuesday, September 3.

The ship ‘Tridevi Prem’, got stuck in the violent waves that suddenly started in the sea around 2.30 AM early on Monday morning, a Coast Guard press release said.

The vessel captain contacted the Coast Guard and NMPT, following which ICG ship ‘Amartya’ was deployed to rescue the crew.
Owned by Mumbai-based Mercator Limited, the dredger was anchored within the limits of NMPT on a contractual agreement with the port to ensure sufficient depth in the channel.
