    Does Indian Coast Guard inspect ferries, stop them if they are overloaded, or investigate these disasters?

    PORT BLAIR/CHENNAI: An overcrowded ferry with 45 passengers, most of them tourists, keeled over and sank off Viper Island, 500 metres from the dockyards in Port Blair in the Andaman & Nicobar Islands, killing at least 21 people around 4pm on Sunday.


    typical indian , ferry design to carry 21 was carrying 45 with no safety gear on board.:p:p:p
