The state administration has asked the tourism department to remove a cargo vessel, which ran aground off the coast on Candolim beach in North Goa district, citing ecological danger to the shoreline.

The vessel, that is grounded approximately 200 metres into the sandbank, landed on the beach on a stormy night and has remained there since 2000.

"The erosion caused due to the presence of the grounded M V River Princess on Candolim shore for last eight years and this can cause a major natural calamity," a letter written by the Sub Divisional Magistrate M V Corjuvenkar said.

The district administration had requested the tourism department to remove the vessel to avoid loss of property and life of the area as apprehended by the villagers.
