Operator of Ship Detained by India Explains Actions – WSJ.com

NEW DELHI—A U.S. maritime-security company that operated a ship detained by Indian authorities this week said the vessel had turned toward Indian shores because of a storm that traveled across the Bay of Bengal and slammed the country’s eastern coast Saturday.

Indian police filed a complaint Monday against the 10 crew and 25 security guards aboard the ship for failing to produce papers authorizing them to carry arms in Indian waters, as well as for procuring fuel from a local agent without permission. The ship is being held in the southern Indian port of Tuticorin.
