Missing fisherman’s brother dies

He was sad that his brother could not be traced even after wreckage was found

The brother of a fisherman, who was one among the seven fishermen onboard the fishing boat, Suvarna Tribhuja, which sank off Malvan Coast in Maharashtra on December 15, 2018, died at a private hospital here on Thursday.

The deceased has been identified as Chandrashekhar Mogera (30), brother of Ramesh Mogera, who is among the seven fishermen who are missing.

According to the Bhatkal Police, Chandrashekhar Mogera was sad after learning that his brother had not been traced even though the wreckage of boat was traced off the Malvan Coast.

He attempted to end his life at his house at Belni village near Bhatkal in Uttara Kannada district on May 10.

He was rushed to a private clinic for treatment in Bhatkal on May 13 and was then shifted to a private hospital in Udupi the same day.

However, all efforts by doctors to revive him here failed and he breathed his last on Thursday.

A case of unnatural death has been registered at the Bhatkal Rural Police Station. Investigation is on, said K.L. Ganesh, Bhatkal Circle Inspector of Police.

Meanwhile, the body of Chandrashekhar Mogera was taken from here to Belni village, where he was cremated on Thursday.

Srinivas Mogera, a relative of Chandrashekhar Mogera, told The Hindu that Chandrashekhar Mogera was very attached to his brother Ramesh Mogera.
