13 July 2007

Chennai: The Coast Guard has recovered four bodies of four of Samudrika 10''s crew as the search for the remaining four others including Capt. continues.

The ONGC vessel, operated and maintained by Sical Logistics Limited, sank off Mumbai in Bombay High on Monday afternoon owing to bad sea conditions. Of the 17 crew on board, nine were rescued the same day.

According to Sical Logistics, the family of the deceased would receive compensation as per their insurance cover along with a matching amount from the company. However, the company did not specify the quantum of the compensation.

While Sical Logistics states that the number of crew onboard as filed with the directorate general of shipping was 17 and all their statutory certificates were valid and up-to-date, reports state the ship''s crew manifest lists only 14. Sical is yet to clarify the anomaly.

The logistics company bagged the Rs126.5-crore thee-year contract to operate and maintain ONGC''s 17 Samudrika vessels this June. This is the fifth time Sical Logistics had bagged the order.
