An unmanned lifeboat of vessel MV Suvari H, which sank in deep seas last week was sighted off. The ship was spotted near Okha by the Indian Coast Guard Ship (ICG) Samrat during the routine patrolling. After confirming that there are no survivors onboard, the boat was towed away by ICGS Samrat. To avoid any kind of impediment and safe passage of merchant vessels transiting through the deep water channel in proximity the boat was towed away.
