The boat which sailed from Indian port of Colochel was reported to become non-operational due to loss of engine propulsion in open sea near Salalah (Oman) for last 08 days with 12 crew men on-board.

On receipt of information and request for help about the fishing dhow, Pakistan Navy Ship was promptly dispatched which through its technical team rectified the defect in the boat and made it operational and sea worthy. Rectification of defect required miscellaneous repairs including gearbox removal and fixing followed by alignments and repairs through improvised solutions by technical team on-board the Indian boat.

The stranded boat crew was dehydrated and also required medical care and edibles. Pakistan Navy Ship rescue team provided edibles and medical care to the crew members of the Indian fishing dhow. Master and crew of the stranded boat thanked for the kind gesture and swift response of Pakistan Navy Ship. The fishing dhow thereafter shaped course to India port.
