Kochi: The Indian Navy on Wednesday rescued 12 more fishermen who were caught in the deep sea following the cyclonic storm Ockhi that hit the southern districts of Kerala and Tamil Nadu.

 The Navy rescued the fishermen from the boat ‘Almighty God’ and brought them to Kochi.

The fishermen, who were found 40 nautical miles from the coast, were provided with food and water before taking them to the shore, a Navy spokesperson said in a tweet.

The fishermen were natives of Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu.

Though the boat had suffered damages in the cyclone, the fishermen did not sustain serious injuries.
