Tugboats Robbed in Arabian Sea

Monday, February 27, 2006
Pirates had a field day with mechanical and electrical equipment from two out-of-order tugboats that were anchored off the coast of the Arabian Sea near Manora Island. On Feb 24, the Docks Police registered an FIR against four masked men, who robbed the two tugboats.

The police said that FIR No 36/06 was registered on the complaint of Ahsan Ali, who is a manager with Old Port (Pvt) Ltd, the company, which owns the tugboats. The Daily Times reported that Ali informed the police that the four men approached his company's boats in two separate vessels. They took the guards stationed at the tugboats hostage and loaded the stuff into their boats. The names of the tugboats are Jawa and Jawa Bosar. The pirates took away motors, some tools and copper and scrap. The police said that the tugboats were being repaired and had been out of order for the last six months. (Source: Daily Times)
