9 pirates being brought to India to face legal action: Navy day after rescuing Iranian vessel

NEW DELHI, Mar 30: A day after rescuing a hijacked Iranian fishing vessel and its 23-member Pakistani crew under an anti-piracy operation at sea, the Indian Navy on Saturday said the nine surrendered pirates are being brought to India for further legal action.
Action will be taken against them under the Maritime Anti-Piracy Act, 2022.
The Indian Navy's specialist teams have completed sanitisation and seaworthiness checks of fishing vessel Al-Kambar, according to a statement shared by the Navy's spokesperson.
"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 Indian Navy on Saturday said these "nine pirates are being brought to India to face legal action", in accordance with the the Maritime Anti-Piracy Act, 2022.
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.
The Indian Navy said it remains committed to ensuring maritime security in the region and safety of seafarers, "irrespective of the nationalities".
Socotra Archipelago is in the northwest Indian Ocean near the Gulf of Aden.
The fresh anti-piracy action by the Indian Navy further cements its role as the first responder that the naval force seeks to play in the Indian Ocean Region.
The action comes two weeks after it had rescued another vessel 'Ruen' and 17 hostages, and captured 35 armed pirates in a nearly 40-hour dramatic mid-sea operation.
Firm actions by the Indian Navy had resulted in the surrender of the pirate ship ex-MV Ruen on March 16, Navy officials had said.
The Navy had seized the former Maltese-flagged vessel in the operation around 2,600 km from the Indian coast that experts said was the first such successful takeover of a cargo ship from the Somali pirates in the last around seven years.
