NEW DELHI, October 18 (Itar-Tass). — Indian police arrested on Friday 35 sailors, crewmembers of the ship belonging to US-based AdvanFort company. The ship was earlier detained in Indian waters. Currently, it is in the Thoothukudi (Tuticorin) port in the southern state of Tamil Nadu, according to Zee News.
"Seaman Guard Ohio” flied the flag of Sierra Leone. The vessel was allegedly sheltering in Indian waters from a cyclone. However, the crewmembers couldn’t provide licenses for the guns found on the ship.
There are three Ukrainians, several Hindu, Brits and Estonians in the crew. Law enforcement bodies initiated an investigation, during which the ship will not be allowed to leave the port.
AdvanFort is engaged in maritime security, notably fighting against piracy and convoying commercial runs.
