Captain VV Pillai mentioned that the ship “MV Nanda Aparna” set sail last week with a massive steel load from Gujarat’s Hazira to Maharashtra’s Alibaug. Per the police, the vessel had become disoriented owing to broken propellers. Per Captain Pillai, the 1,478-ton commerce ship is nearly 78 meters long and five meters wide.
