KARACHI: The Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi is working to ensure that five Pakistani crew members of a Panama-flagged ship, detained at an Indian port for safety reasons, return home as soon as possible, officials said.
The ship was detained at the Vishakhapatnam Port over five months ago, they said.
A senior official said that the situation was not “alarming”.
The Pakistanis are expected to return home by the end of this month, he added.
The ship which had five Pakistani and 19 Bangladeshi crew members was detained by Indian authorities when it failed to meet safety requirements during inspection. internews
