Bhubaneswar, May 09: At least 11 fishermen stranded in the Bay of Bengal amid the rough sea conditions due to the cyclone Asani have been airlifted by the Coast guard, informed Special Relief Commissioner (SRC) Pradeep Jena on Monday.

Some fishermen from Chikiti area of Ganjam district were returning from Vishakhapatnam to Ganjam on a boat. However, the fishermen were unable to negotiate through the rough waters due to high tide in view of cyclonic storm, said Jena.
