Shipment with Indian Crew on Board Hijacked, Captured

With as many as 15 Indian on board, a cargo ship was hijacked off the port city of Bosasso in Somalia, said a media report in Saturday.

“A sea-jacking of an Indian cargo vessel with around 15 Indian crew (took place) around lunchtime (Friday) just 14 nautical miles off the port city of Bosasso in the semi-autonomous north-eastern region of Somalia,” reports said.

According to reports, the vessel was captured after unloading goods from UAE at the Somali harbour from where it was sailing off.

Initial reports indicate of business deal gone sour.

The vessel is said to operate regularly between Saudi Arabia and the African coast and “had brought sugar in a deal brokered by Dahabshil (hawala money transfer operator),” the report said.
