Boat capsize: steerman, crew member arrested

The steerman of the double-decker boat Victor Samuel and crew member Anish were arrested by the police team probing the tragedy. They would be produced before a magistrate court at Peerumade in Idukki district later, police said.

A preliminary probe into the boat tragedy had found that an overcrowded upper deck and the steeersman's "carelessness" caused the tourist boat to capsize in the lake here on September 30.
