The Indian Navy helped rescue an injured sailor from a hijacked cargo ship on Monday. The hijackers let the sailor go, and he has been flown to Oman for treatment, according to the Navy.
The Navy stated that the injured crew member is stable. They managed his medical needs on their ship, but because he needed urgent medical attention beyond what the ship could provide, he was taken to Oman.
Since Saturday, the Indian Navy’s warship has been following MV Ruen. The ship reported that six “pirates” had illegally boarded it in the Arabian Sea. The Navy quickly responded to a distress call, deploying its warship on anti-piracy patrol in the Gulf of Aden to find and assist MV Ruen.
The Navy mentioned that their aircraft flew over the hijacked vessel, keeping a close eye on its movements. The ship is now heading towards the coast of Somalia, according to the Navy.
