Rescued Indian sailor says 'Govt didn't help us'
The return of the sailors is being seen as a significant milestone in India's war against piracy.
New Delhi: The wait is finally over for most of the Indian sailors of vessel ships Royal Grace and Smyni. One of the 28 Indian seafarers rescued from Somali pirates after their vessels were hijacked in 2012 has reached India on Monday.
Expressing happiness to have finally reached home after a year of captivity, Saurabh Kumar said, "We suffered too much. There was physical torture. The somalians were hell on us and no one should go back."
Kumar further said, "The Indian government didn't help. Leader of the ship told us this, he said that they were letting us go for free." The other five of the 28 Indian sailors are also scheduled to reach the New Delhi airport on Monday.
