Indian Navy Ship INS Sharda foiled a piracy attempt in the Gulf of Aden on May 16, and also rescued a Liberian ship in the process, earning praise for its actions. The Gulf of Aden, off the coast of Somalia, is often targeted by pirates of Somali or other origin, and INS Sharda was stationed there to thwart exactly such attacks.

On May 16, 20 17, at about 1645 hrs [4:45 pm local time], the ship received a distress call from MV Lord Mountbatten, a Liberian-registered ship, in position 230 nm [nautical miles] South-West of Salalah in the Gulf of Aden.” Read More…
