The coastal agencies including the coast guard are trying to find the missing boat in the sea.
On Monday, the police said that a fishing boat with more than 100 people in Delhi and Tamilnadu was going to New Zealand, according to a Reuters report. The location of the boat is not known at present. Two officers who were involved in the case said that Police Dhanapani, who was in Delhi’s custody, told the police that the ship was going to New Zealand.
According to the official, on January 12, the boat went away from Munambam Harbour in Kerala and it reached 100 to 200 people. Officer V. G. Ravindran said that the police had left around 70 bags and about 20 identification documents.
officer MJ Sojan said, “The bags are full of dry goods and clothes, suggesting they were preparing for a long journey. The people and boat are missing somewhere in the sea. Many Indian agencies, including the coast guard, are trying to locate the boat.”
According to the New Zealand Herald newspaper, the Immigration Department issued a warning to anyone trying to cross the sea illegally for the possibility of drowning. “The message of such activities is relevant, the message is easy for anyone imagining such a trip: Any attempt to reach New Zealand will keep your life and your family members at a greater risk,” Immigration New Zealand said. Assistant General Manager Stephen Vaughan “You will be defeated by the sea.”
Storms and Cyclone between Indonesia and Australia are usually on a boat route from India.
Although not arrived at such a large extent in New Zealand, the country was a target for selfless smuggling, Wahan said. “We are aware of any potential activities,” he said. According to the laws of New Zealand, this large amount of land can be acquired for up to six months, which can be extended up to 28 days at a time.
