Indian Defence Minister to review coastal security

NEW DELHI (PTI): Against the backdrop of merchant vessel MV Pavit running aground off the Mumbai coast, Defence Minister A K Antony will review the coastal security with other senior Navy, Coast Guard and Defence Ministry officials.

The review will take stock of the coastal security in the eastern as well as the western coastline, Defence Ministry officials said.

Following the incident of MV Pavit, the Ministry had asked the Navy and Coast Guard to submit a report as to how the abandoned ship entered Indian waters undetected.

The Panama-flag vessel started to drift towards Mumbai coast after its engines failed a month ago near the coast of Oman, leading to flooding of its engine room.

The crew members of the 70-meter-long vessel were rescued following a distress call near Oman.
