A fisherman lost his life and another was injured after their boat capsized near Ibrahim Hyderi on Sunday.

As the boat capsized and started to sink, other fishing boats nearby attempted to rescue the fishermen. They managed to pull two fishermen in a semi-conscious state from the sea who were then transported to a hospital. Later, one of the fishermen, Jafar, died. The other fisherman, 50-year-old Imamul Haq, survived and is currently admitted to the hospital. After completion of legal proceedings, the police handed over the deceased man's body to his family.
