Wed, Nov 19 11:13 AM

New Delhi, Nov 19 (IANS) Indian Navy stealth frigate INS Tabar has
successfully repulsed an attack by pirates off the Somali coast and
sunk their ship, an official said here Wednesday.

The Indian Navy ship was fired at by pirates in the Gulf of Aden late Tuesday.

“The pirates fired at INS Tabar, which is patrolling the waters off the
Somali coast. The ship retaliated and sank the pirate vessel,” a navy
official said.

Last week, INS Tabar had staved off an attack by
Somali pirates on two merchant vessels – one from India and another
from Saudi Arabia.
