On January 5, one of the sailors among those 41 sailors Anoop Pathak sent an SOS message from his Twitter handle, which read as, “@SushmaSwaraj our ship has holes and to much water coming in!... Please help us we want to go back home!”

As per the media reports, 41 Indian sailors are stranded in four abandoned merchant ships at Ajman anchorage in UAE.
