Navy Commandos Rescued 15 Indians From a Ship That Was Hijacked in The Arabian Sea.

Navy commandos board ship hijacked in Arabian Sea

The Navy said it stopped a hijack attempt on the MV Lila Norfolk ship. They did this by using their mission-ready tools, like the P8I patrol aircraft and INS Chennai.

All 21 crew members, including 15 Indians, on a ship called MV Lila Norfolk, were safely rescued in the Arabian Sea. The ship had been hijacked, but the Indian Navy’s special commando unit intervened, took control of the ship, and made sure it was safe. The Navy used its aircraft and a ship called INS Chennai to stop the hijackers. The commandos checked the ship and confirmed that the hijackers were not there. The Indian Navy’s strong response likely scared off the hijackers, preventing the hijacking attempt.

INS Chennai is close to MV and helping to fix the power and propulsion systems. It will soon continue its journey to the next port.

The vessel was understood to be carrying about a dozen Indian crew and had sent a message on the UKMTO portal indicating boarding by around five to six unknown armed personnel on Thursday evening.

The Indian Navy quickly took action in the changing situation. They sent out a Maritime Patrol Aircraft (MPA) and redirected INS Chennai, which was originally on Maritime Security Operations, to help the ship.

According to the Navy, on Friday morning, the airplane flew over the ship, got in touch, and made sure the crew is safe. The naval plane keeps an eye on the ship’s movement, and INS Chennai is heading to help the hijacked vessel.

We’re keeping a close eye on the situation with other agencies in the area. The Indian Navy is dedicated to keeping merchant ships safe in the region, working with international partners and friendly foreign countries. This recent incident is one of several that have happened in the past month. In December, the Navy helped a Malta-flagged ship called MV Ruen during a piracy incident in the Arabian Sea, about 700 nautical miles from the Indian coast.

On December 23, a ship called MV Chem Pluto, with 22 people on board (mostly Indians), got attacked by drones about 220 nautical miles southwest of Porbandar while heading to New Mangalore.

The Navy says these attacks show a change in where these incidents happen, getting closer to the Indian Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).

The day after the MV Chem Pluto incident, another ship, MV Sai Baba, with 25 Indian crew members, was going to India when it got drone attacked in the southern Red Sea, along with a Norwegian ship. Thankfully, no one got hurt in both situations.
