Dwarka : Coast Guard rescued 12 members of a cargo ship sank in the Arabian Sea off the coast of Gujarat. The officials gave this information on Sunday.

At around 9 pm on Saturday night, the Coast Guard received information that the water was filling in the ‘MSV Krishna Sudama’ ship, about 10 nautical miles off Okha coast. The Coast Guard said in a statement that the ship was going to the African country of Djibouti on Saturday carrying 905 tonnes of rice and sugar from Mundra in Gujarat.

The ship left Mundra in Gujarat on the morning of 26 September for Djibouti and carried 905 tones of rice and sugar. Immediate search and rescue teams were dispatched as soon as the information was received. Coast Guard Ship C-411 was sent from Okha, C-161 from Mundra to the spot.

Also MV Southern Robin was dispatched for help. Coast Guard Ship C-411 carried out a search operation after the exact location was reported from Southern Robin and 12 crew members were safely rescued from the sinking ship.

As it was night, the search operation was very difficult. Also, there was a problem due to debris being scattered in the sea and not suited to the weather. Court Guard Ship C-161 conducted an operation in the area to find out if there was any oil leakage from the sinking ship.
