The Coast Guard ship returned to New Mangalore harbour with the injured crew member for rendering further medical assistance to him.

Expressing satisfaction over the swift medical evacuation, Deputy Inspector General S S Dasila, Commander, Coast Guard Karnataka, said every life was precious and all efforts would be made to safeguard life and property at sea.
