    The incident occurred when the boat in which the fishermen had gone fishing on September 16, hit a rock near breakwater close to the Old Port while returning to the port and began to sink due to flooding last evening, a release from the Coast Guard said today.

    The Coast Guard had dispatched its ship Amartya apart from its hovercraft to search for the missing fisherman, the release added.
