INS Trishul Returns Home after 120 days Anti-Piracy Patrol

 INS Trishul returned to Mumbai on 23 Dec after completion of her four month long anti-piracy mission in the Gulf of Aden Region. The ship had left Mumbai in Aug this year for carrying out anti-piracy patrol in one of the most geo-strategically sensitive regions of the world.

On 06 Oct 17, Trishul successfully thwarted a piracy attempt on MV Jag Amar, an Indian merchant ship. The ship also escorted more than 50 merchant ships safely through the waters of Gulf of Aden and Somalia.
