Death toll of the violent storm in the Bay of Bengal reached 125 on Saturday after the recovery of 25 more bodies while more than a thousand other fishermen are also feared dead as they have been missing for the last four days.
Coast guard sources and local people of the coast said the hope of finding more floating bodies in the sea is dissipating as the sea fishes would have devoured them. But the relatives of missing fishermen and the local administration are still searching for bodies in the sea. Relatives of the missing ones were still waiting on beaches for their dear ones in different coastal areas including Cox's Bazar and Kuakata.
Navy officer, Lt Commander Firoz Kabir, who has been missing since Tuesday night's storm, could not be traced till yesterday evening. The navy ship also could not be salvaged.
