Further dramas for AdvanFort vessel


Mumbai: The remaining two crew members of the AdvanFort controlled ship Seaman Guard Ohio have now been arrested by Tamil Nadu police, according to local reports.
The two members were left to take care of the vessel's maintenance but were detained yesterday along with three locals, who were suspected to have illegally sold fuel to the ship.
Further worries for the under fire security firm ensued when the ship's chief engineer allegedly attempted to commit suicide, but his attempt was foiled and he was sent to the port hospital and later arrested.
The crew has been accused of entering Indian waters with weapons which they did not have the right documents for, with 35 arms and over 5,000 rounds of ammunition seized from the vessel. [20/10/13]
