The incident took place in UAE. Abandoned by their employer in leaking ships, at least 41 Indian sailors found support in form of External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, who stepped in to help them following SOS. 

 

Reports said the sailor's hail from different parts of India. They are employees of four merchant ships in the Gulf.

The sailors who are stuck there are from Delhi, Maharashtra, Odisha, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Uttarakhand, Punjab, Haryana, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Jammu, Karnataka, and Kerala. The tweets pleading for rescue had earlier been sent to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Sushma Swaraj, and V. K. Singh.
