India awaits Iran’s decision on detained oil tanker – The Hindu

Iran is yet to decide on India’s claims that the detained oil tanker had caused no oil pollution in the Gulf of Persia while on its way back carrying crude from Basra in Iraq.

There is no change in the status, Shipping Corporation of India(SCI) Chairman-cum-Managing Director B.K. Mandal told The Hindu over telephone from Mumbai on Monday, about the oil tanker belonging to the SCI now detained for almost a fortnight at the Bandar Abbas Port. MT Desh Shanti, a 1.4 lakh tonne oil tanker, was detained by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps on the allegation that it had caused pollution in its waters.
