An NGO has announced a financial aid of Rs 1.11 lakh to the families of the three fishermen,who are believed to have been killed onboard the Kuber,a Porbandar-based trawler used by terrorists to reach Mumbai on November 26.
The aid was announced by Seva,an NGO,for the families of Balwant Tandel,Mukesh Rathod and Natu Rathod,who were onboard the trawler,which was allegedly hijacked by terrorists. The three fishermen belonged to Macchiborsivad village of Navsari district.
The terrorists reportedly killed the fishermen and threw their bodies in the sea. The captain of Kuber,Amarsinh Solanki,had been captured by the terrorists to guide them to Mumbai. Solankis body was later found on the boat,which was abandoned.
President of Seva,Kanubhai Sukhadia,said they will also provide ration to the affected families every month till the children of the three slain fishermen reach adulthood. He rued the fact that the Central government has not provided any financial assistance to the families of the slain fishermen yet.
