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.  





Taking to Titter, Swaraj said, "We have contacted the Captains of the two vessels, Ship owners, port authorities and the Government."

"They have essential supplies of for next two weeks. We are helping in the settlement of their dues and release of the crew," she tweeted. 







She further said in her tweet that the government has asked the mission to ensure that Indian sailors do not suffer for want of essential supplies. Abandoned by their employer in leaking ships, at least 41 Indian sailors found support from the External Affairs Minister, who stepped in to help them following a SOS. 


External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Monday said that India will help out its sailors stuck in merchant ships at Ajman in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
