26/11 Mumbai terror attack: Gujarat govt compensates kin of three fishermen after 12 years

NAVSARI:  Twelve years after five fishermen were presumed to have been killed by Pakistani terrorists before they carried out the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack, the Gujarat government has given Rs 5 lakh each as compensation to families of three fishermen, an official said on Tuesday.

The families of two other fishermen, including their captain Amarsinh Solanki, who were onboard ‘Kuber’ fishing trawler which was occupied in the sea by the terrorists, had been given compensation by different authorities in the past.

The kin of the other three fishermen, Natu Rathod, Mukesh Rathod and Balwant Tandel, belonging Vansi village in Jalalpore taluka of Gujarat’s Navsari district, were waiting for the monetary benefit.

The compensation of Rs 5 lakh each was last week given to the family members of the three fishermen in the form of fixed deposits.
