The Indian Navy executed a daring rescue operation in the Arabian Sea on March 29, saving 23 Pakistani nationals from Somali pirates. The rescued crew, aboard the Iranian fishing vessel Al-Kambar, expressed their gratitude towards India by chanting ‘India Zindabad.’ The operation involved a specialist team from the Indian Navy who protected the crew from the armed pirates and ensured the vessel’s safety and seaworthiness.

The 23-member Pakistani crew of the rescued Iranian fishing vessel, Al-Kambar, expressed their gratitude to the Indian Navy. They raised ‘India Zindabad’ slogans, thanking the Navy’s specialist team for protecting them from the nine armed pirates. Following the rescue, the crew underwent a thorough medical checkup before being cleared to continue with their fishing activities.

Indian Navy’s Prompt Response
The operation was prompted by reports of a potential piracy incident on the Iranian fishing vessel, which was approximately 90 nautical miles southwest of Socotra. Upon receiving the information, two Indian Naval ships deployed for maritime security operations in the Arabian Sea were diverted to intercept the hijacked fishing vessel.

The Indian Navy successfully intercepted the hijacked fishing vessel on March 29, rescuing the Pakistani crew and apprehending the nine armed pirates. The crew, visibly relieved, raised slogans of ‘India Zindabad’ as a gesture of gratitude towards their rescuers.

“The crew, comprising 23 Pakistani nationals, were given a thorough medical checkup prior to clearing the boat to continue with her fishing activities,” it said.The Indian Navy on Friday had rescued the hijacked Iranian fishing vessel and its crew, after more than 12 hours of “intense coercive tactical measures” as part of the anti-piracy operation.The hijacked vessel was intercepted on Thursday, the Navy said on Friday.

“INS Sumedha intercepted FV ‘Al Kambar’ during early hours of Friday and was joined subsequently by the guided missile frigate INS Trishul,” it said.

“After more than 12 hours of intense coercive tactical measures as per the SOPs, the pirates on board the hijacked fishing vessel were forced to surrender. The crew, comprising 23 Pakistani nationals, have been safely rescued,” the Indian Navy has added.

The fishing vessel at the time of incident was approximately 90 nm southwest of Socotra and was “reported to have been boarded by nine armed pirates,” it said.

Commitment to Maritime Security
In a statement, the Indian Navy reiterated its commitment to ensuring maritime security in the region and the safety of all seafarers, regardless of nationality. The successful rescue operation highlights the Indian Navy’s vigilance and readiness to respond to maritime threats, safeguarding the waters of the Arabian Sea.
