Somali pirates hijack ship: Indian Navy to the rescue
Indian Navy warships INS Tarkash and INS Mumbai were the first to respond to assist the Chinese PLA in sanitising a ship hijacked by the somali pirates in the Gulf of Aden. The crew had taken cover of the bulk carrier and took to the secured location. The ship has been rendered safe.
The hijacking comes days after pirates hijacked an Indian dhow that was on route to Bossaso from Dubai.
The Chinese Navy has thanked their Indian counterparts for the anti-piracy mission. The Chinese, Italian and Pakistani Navies which were also operating in the area also responded.
