The incident took place in the Arabian Sea, an expansive region that has witnessed a surge in pirate activities. The FV Iman, carrying around 17 crew members, was boarded and hijacked by Somali pirates. INS Sumitra, operating 700 nautical miles west of Kochi, intercepted the vessel promptly. The Indian Navy executed well-established Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) to ensure the safe release of the crew. The pirates were effectively coerced, leading to the surrender of their weapons and the subsequent sanitization of the fishing vessel. Following the operation, FV Iman was released for its onward transit, marking a successful mission for the Indian Navy.

This commendable feat by the Indian Navy comes at a critical juncture when maritime security is under threat in various regions. The Arabian Sea, in particular, has seen a rise in pirate attacks, further exacerbated by the actions of Iran-backed Houthi rebels in the Red Sea. The timely and effective response of INS Sumitra not only protected the lives of the hijacked crew members but also underscored the importance of a robust naval presence in safeguarding crucial business routes.
