Madras High Court has directed the authorities of Shipping, Coast Guard and Mumbai Port to detain MV Navios Venus, that rammed a mechanised fishing boat off Colachel coast on October 22, 20211.

According to FleetMon, “The ship is to be detained for 3 weeks. The petitioner submitted that the fishermen crew was seriously injured in the collision when the mechanised boat was anchored about 20 miles from the Colachel harbour. “

As the cargo ship speedily hit the boat, 17 fishermen on my boat were thrown out. Two of the crew are in serious condition. My boat was also damaged and is unfit to sail into the sea,” the petitioner said.
He further submitted that MV Navios Venus flouted the operating guidelines framed by the International Maritime Organisation.
“The rash and negligent navigation and failure to comply with the Conventions on the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions in the Sea, 1972, resulted in the collision.

After the collision, the master of the vessel did not provide any humanitarian assistance and proceeded to the next port,” said his counsel advocate P Muthusamy.
