The prosecution filed a petition before the court of Principal Sessions Judge, Alappuzha, P.Somarajan on Monday seeking to quash an order of Ambalappuzha Judicial First Class Magistrate V. Udayakumar releasing the Singapore-flagged ship m.v. Prabhu Daya, which was involved in a collision with a fishing boat off the Cherthala coast killing five fishermen on March 1.

Public prosecutor C.V. Lumumba filed the petition, which will be taken up by the court on Tuesday.

Investigation on

In the petition, the public prosecutor had argued that the ship should not be released as the investigation is still on.
