EU NAVFOR assists Indian Dhow released by piratesNovember 30, 2009 - 16:17
On the evening of 26 November 2009, the owner of the 142 foot long Indian Dhow Shree Narayan, previously reported being hijacked by Somali pirates on 18 November 18, confirmed by telephone the pirates had left the vessel.
The pirates intended to use the Dhow as mother vessel to commit further acts of piracy but released the vessel because of a lack of food and water onboard.
EU NAVFOR Norwegian warship Fridtjof Nansen, was tasked to search for her, to check if the 14 Indian crew members on board needed assistance or medical support.
On the morning of 27 November Fridtjof Nansen found the vessel and a team was invited on board. The Indian crew was in good health but lacked food and fuel. EU NAVFOR warship Fridtjof Nansen provided vital supplies after which the Indian Dhow was able to proceed to their next port of call. The Indian crew were extremely grateful for the support and assistance from EU NAVFOR.
