In response, an Indian Navy warship was swiftly deployed to intercept the suspicious dhow as it made its way into Indian waters. Utilizing advanced tracking capabilities, the Indian Navy successfully located, tracked, and intercepted the vessel at sea.

Following the interception, boarding operations were conducted on the dhow, leading to the largest seizure of narcotics in recent times.

Subsequently, the vessel was towed by the Indian Navy warship to the nearest Indian port, where both the crew and the seized contraband were handed over to the appropriate Law Enforcement Agencies for further investigation and legal proceedings.

This operation holds significant importance not only due to the sheer quantity and value of the confiscated narcotics but also due to the collaborative efforts demonstrated by the Indian Navy and the NCB.

It serves as a testament to the Indian Navy’s unwavering dedication to safeguarding maritime security and upholding the rule of law in the region.
