PIB
Indian Navy has deployed Ships INS Chennai and INS Sunayna in the Gulf of Oman to re-assure Indian Flagged Vessels operating or transiting through the Persian Gulf and Gulf of Oman following the maritime security incidents in the region.

In addition, aerial surveillance by Indian Navy aircraft is also being undertaken in the area. The Information Fusion Centre - Indian Ocean Region which was launched by the India Navy in December last year at Gurugram is also keeping a close watch on the movement of ships in the Gulf region.

After a holistic review of the situation, Director General Shipping has issued two advisories this month to all Indian Flagged Vessels operating in the Strait of Hormuz and Persian or Arabian Gulf Region advising Indian Flagged ships to undertake appropriate protection measures.

The Indian Navy in a statement said, it remains committed to ensuring the safety of Indian maritime trade and merchant vessels operating in the region and contributing towards maintaining a stable and peaceful Indian Ocean Region.
