Police on Wednesday arrested the captain and four crew members of the fishing boat which got into a marine accident with a speedboat, injuring 14 people.

The speedboat had crashed into the fishing boat which was anchored near One and Only Reethi Rah Resort. According to MNDF, the fishing boat did not have its navigation lights on and, thus, the captain of the speedboat had not seen the boat in time.

The Managing Director of ADK Ahmed Afaal stated that two among the injured are in serious condition with internal damages. One of them suffered a serious head injury and has undergone surgery. Afaal added that four people are now being treated in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) while the hospital has since discharged seven of the injured.
