In meeting held in Kozhikode an understanding on compensation has been reached between representatives of the Panamanian-flagged Japanese cargo vessel, ‘M V Izumo’ and various unions in connection with the hit-and-run case off the Kozhikode coast on January 16.

As per the agreement reached at a meeting at the office of former State industries minister Elamaram Kareem, MLA, in Kozhikode yesterday, the owners of the ship will pay a compensation of Rs.19.5 lakh to the three fishermen who had a miraculous escape after the ship rammed their fishing vessel ‘Al Ameen’.

The M V Izumo, carrying soyabeans, was on its way to Singapore from Kandla on January 16 when it reportedly hit the boat which sank. The three fishermen on the boat had jumped overboard just before the collision and were rescued by other fishing boats in the vicinity.
