Commissioner Hyderabad Division Saeed Magnejo said that the ongoing local rescue efforts are being supported by coordination between Navy and Army units in the area.

Around 80 pilgrims, including women and children, were on their way to a shrine 'mela' (fair) when their boat capsized in the open sea, Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Thatta Haseeb Afzal said, adding that the boat was overloaded with passengers.

About 15-20 people were rescued and admitted to the hospital in an unconscious state, Dawn news quoted Baig as saying.

The DC Thatta said that two boats with 60 people onboard struck to each other while going to Pir Pithu Mizaar due to strong winds.
