Indian Navy escorts crude oil carriers transiting through Strait of Hormuz


The Indian Navy is securing and escorting Indian crude oil carriers transiting through the Strait of Hormuz in the wake of a heightened threat perception following a recent attack on oil tankers in the region.

Officials explained that naval teams have boarded Indian oil carriers and are escorting them out of the region. So far, five such tankers have been escorted out.

More Indian flagged tankers will be escorted out in a similar manner. Officials said that naval teams are  boarding the ships only after taking a request for it from the owners.
