The Forbidden Island – Shocking Facts About The North Sentinel Island

The Natives Have Killed Indian Sailors

21. The Natives Have Killed Indian Sailors

On 27 January 2006, two Indian sailors called Sunder Raj and Pandit Tiwari were harvesting crabs near the North Sentinel island although their deaths were not entirely their fault. They had a crude anchor fixed in their boat and as luck would have it, the anchor had a malfunction and the boat drifted near the island on its own.

The natives thinking that they were going to be attacked, made the first move and killed the fishermen. After 3 days, their bodies were discovered by the Indian Coast Guard and they were able to recover only one body before being attacked.
