Vessel with 5 Indians hijacked
MUMBAI: Days after a British vessel St James with six Indians was seized by pirates, another UK-flagged vessel M V Asian Glory with five Indians
on board was hijacked in the Gulf of Aden late on Friday. Both the ships are operated by the UK-based shipping firm Zodiac.

Asian Glory, an automobile carrier, was hijacked 620 miles from the Somali coast. It had a crew of 25 people, including 10 Ukrainians, eight Bulgarians, two Romanians and five Indians.

Officials in the Indian directorate general of shipping said that the owner’s representatives had informed the directorate that all the crew members were safe. ‘‘One of the sailors managed to call the management company and convey that the ship was hijacked but that the crew were in good health,’’ said an official.

Officials in National Union of Seafarers of India (NUSI) said the details of the sailors were not available but they were believed to be from Goa, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Gujarat.
