The Indian Coast Guard on Thursday said it has pressed into action its three ships and a Dornier aircraft after the Sri Lankan Navy sought assistance to control a fire onboard an oil tanker off the east coast of Sri Lanka.

In a swift sea and air coordinated Search and Rescue (SAR) operation, the Coast Guard said it immediately diverted ICG Ships Shaurya, Sarang and Samudra Paheredar, besides a Dornier aircraft for the firefight on oil tanker New Diamond.

“Assistance sought by Sri Lanka Navy from the Indian Coast Guard for fire and explosion onboard Oil Tanker MT NewDiamond 37 NM east off Sri Lanka coast. ICG ships and aircraft deployed for immediate assistance," it said in a tweet, tagging the Defence Minister of India and the official spokesperson of the Ministry of External Affairs.

“India Coast Guard in a swift Sea & Air Coordinated SAR operation immediately diverted ICG Ships Shaurya, Sarang, Samudra Paheredar & Dornier Aircraft for firefighting on Oil Tanker MT New Diamond,” its second tweet said.(PTI)
