New Delhi, Dec 10: Family of captain Sunil James who is serving imprisonment in Togo in West Africa, met Prime minister Manmohan Singh on Tuesday. 

The family sought help for his immediate release. They are likely to meet Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi too. 

James was detained for allegedly helping pirates who had attacked and looted his Marshall Islands-flagged MT Ocean Centurion on July 16. 

James' 11-month old son had passed away early this month. His 31-year-old wife, Aditi and other family members are desperately waiting for his arrival to conduct the last rites of his son.
