Armed forces rescue tourists stranded in Havelock Island

Havelock Island

The Andaman and Nicobar Command, ANC, ferried stranded tourists from Havelock Island to Port Blair, braving rough sea and heavy rains. A statement of ANC said, a message was received from the civil administration on Sunday that several tourists were stranded in Havelock Island after the cancellation of a boat meant for ferrying civilians.

Two naval ships INS Bangaram and INS Battimalv were sailed for the mission despite torrential rains and very rough weather, the statement said. Twenty-four tourists were ferried to Port Blair.

The Andaman and Nicobar Islands have been experiencing heavy rains and very rough seas since Wednesday last week. The Port Blair-based Andaman and Nicobar Command is a joint command of the Indian Armed Forces.
