In yet another collision involving a merchant vessel and a fishing boat off the embattled Kerala coast, a dinghy with an outboard motor sank some 18 nautical miles off Beypore, near Kozhikode, after it was reportedly rammed by a merchant ship at 3.45 p.m. on Wednesday.

The Coast Guard, which launched a Dornier aircraft and two patrol vessels to scour the seas off Beypore to ascertain the incident and investigate the vessels that were transiting the area at the time of the reported accident, has summoned the Panama-flagged merchant ship Izumo and Indonesia-flagged bulk carrier Fenghai to the Cochin Port for further investigation.
