Bombay HC comes to the rescue of 16 stranded sailors

A vacation bench of Justices Ajey Gadkari and N. J. Jamadar was hearing a petition filed by nine of the 16 sailors seeking to be disembarked as they remained on the M T Tag Navy vessel since long and the living conditions on the ship are pathetic.

The vessel was arrested and anchored on April 20 this year pursuant to a court order while hearing a civil suit between the vessel owner company Tag Offshore Ltd and creditor R. H. Petroleum private limited.

The court on Thursday last said in the dispute between the company and others, the lives of the crew members cannot be put in jeopardy.
