Naval intervention foils pirate attack on an Indian ship

The Indian Navy has been quick off the mark off Somalia

The MV Jag Arnav, a bulk carrier owned by India’s Great Eastern Shipping Company, was in the Gulf of Aden when it came under attack by Somali pirates. The Indian Navy’s patrol ship picked up the alarm signal at 10.30am today, and dispatched an armed helicopter and a contingent of marine commandos, who prevented the pirates from boarding and hijacking the Jag Arnav.

  1. Nice to see that the Indian Navy is doing it’s job. On a personal note, I’m glad to see that the crew is safe. I’d met them in 2005 when I’d visited this very same ship.

  2. Good development..!

    We may expect some noise from ‘western peace experts’ similar to the Maldives coup days – ‘India bares its fangs’ etc.. 🙂

  3. This is an outrage! How can India defend indians??
    What about the feelings of the poor somali pirates? Can’t you see that their status is the result of imperialistic activities… of.. (fading to white noise).
