Pirates, using speedboats, has started firing at the ship, MV Gibe, which then called out for help to the nearest ship, the INS Mysore. The Naval Warship sent a helicopter immediately and rescues the ship, which was later escorted to safety.
The Naval Commandos boarded a pirate ship and found a cache of weapons, including AK-47's and several rounds of ammunition. 12 of the pirates are Somali and 11 Yemeni.
Now, a doubt remains over what to do with the pirates. They will most likely be tried by courts in neighbouring countries. Their capture represents a rare victory in the Battle against piracy in the Gulf of Aden.
