The search operation for the reported floating bodies continues in the sea off trincomolee


The search operation carried out by the Navy to retrieve five bodies is being continued 20 nautical miles off Trincomalee.

The Trincomalee harbor police stated this morning that the search operation was utilising three Dora vessels.

On a tip-off by a fisherman, search operations started last night but the efforts were halted later due to inclement weather.

The fisherman who provided the tip-off had told police that he witnessed three females and two male bodies floating in the sea.
