Thottam: Body of the drowned fisherman found this afternoon.
Udupi/Thottam, August 15, 2013: The dead body of Vittal (48), who drowned yesterday morning near Thottam beach when he had gone to kairampuni fishing was found this afternoon at around 12-45pm.

The search teams were searching for the body since yesterday morning but in vain. People of some fishing boats informed the search parties about seeing the floating body but the search team couldn’t locate the body upon reaching the spot. Due to the velocity of high wind/tide the sea was rough and even the expert fishermen’s were not able to guess the approximate location of the body. Today at around 12-45 pm, the fishermen fishing near Kadike beach saw the body floating and they informed the locals. As soon as the news  spread, people rushed to Kadike beach to see their loved one. One of the search team who were gone to Malpe in search of the body came to the location and brought the body to the shore.

The president of Kemmannu panchayat Mr. Nithyanand Kemmannu visited the place and condoled the death of Vittal with the family members and the locals. The Malpe police took statements from the kairampuni owner Mr. Janardhan Tingalaya and the family members of the deceased. Then the police sent the body for forensic test.
