Ship-Boat Collision; Foreign Ship Crew In Distress
Kochi: Galanos, the second officer of the foreign ship which hit a local boat out in the sea, resulting in the death of two fishermen, has been on a hunger strike for the last ten days. As the trial in the case is yet to begin even after one and a half years after the incident, the crew of the ship is in acute misery. They are staying at a hotel in Kochi. They demand that the authorities should either punish them or allow them to go home.
