INS Trishul foils piracy attempt on Indian ship MV Jag Amar in Gulf of Aden

INS Trishul foils piracy attempt on Indian ship MV Jag Amar in Gulf of Aden

New Delhi, Oct 6 (UNI) The Indian Navy today foiled a piracy attempt on 85,000-tonne bulk cargo ship MV Jag Amar in the Gulf of Aden. “Stealth frigate INS Trishul thwarted a piracy attempt on Indian registered merchant vessel 'Jag Amar' at 12:30 pm on Friday,” Navy spokesperson Captain DK Sharma said. MARCOS commandos aboard Navy vessel INS Trishul today thwarted a piracy attempt on an Indian ship, the 82,000-ton cargo carrier MV Jaga Mar, in the Gulf of Aden. An AK-47 and another magazine with 27 rounds, grapnels, ropes, fuel drums and ladders were recovered, Captain Sharma added. The ship and 26 crew members are safe, he added. The cargo ship was en route Jubail, Saudi Arabia. The Gulf of Aden, a 1,000 km stretch of water located between the coasts of Yemen and Somalia, is jointly policed by India, China and the combined Maritime Forces - a 32-nation multi-national naval force - to counter pirates. Somalian pirates had captured an Indian ship for a week in April this year. UNI ASH SHK 1830
