The Indian Navy today foiled a piracy attempt against an Indian bulk carrier in the Gulf of Aden. Capt Sharma said an AK 47, one magazine with 27 rounds, grapnels, ropes, fuel drums and ladders were recovered during the operation.Jag Amar.

The cargo ship, which was targeted by the pirates, had 26 Indian crews on board.

The cargo ship MV Jag Amar was on its way to Jubail, Saudi Arabia.

Twelve pirates on a skiff made the attempt on the Indian ship, MV Jag Amar, around 12.30pm.

The Indian Navy's INS Trishul a stealth frigate, thwarted the attempt. The operation was conducted by Indian Navy's Marine Commandos or MARCOS.

In April, INS Mumbai, Tarkash, Trishul and Aditya, which were passing through the Gulf of Aden on way to deployment to the Mediterranean sea, had saved another merchant ship MV OS 35 from pirates.

Foreign navies have been deployed off the Gulf of Aden to operate convoys and monitoring a transit corridor for ships to pass through vulnerable points. Piracy continues to be rampant off Africa's east coast, with pirates venturing deep into the Arabian Sea to hunt for merchant vessels and oil tankers, despite global efforts to curb the menace.
