Video on net shows PNS Babur brushing against INS Godavari

New Delhi, Aug 3 (PTI)

A video purportedly showing Pakistani Naval Ship (PNS) Babur brushing against INS Godavari in Gulf of Aden during the rescue of hostages on-board merchant vessel MV Suez in June, surfaced on the internet today.

The video, which appears to have been shot by a Pakistan sailor onboard PNS Babur, shows the Pakistani ship brushing each other in high sea amidst anti-Indian slogans.
Meanwhile, Defence Minister on Monday while informing Parliament on the stand-off between the two navies, had said that a protest was lodged with the Pakistan government through the High Commission here against the violation of relevant regulations of navigational safety by the Pakistani naval ship.

"While carrying out anti-piracy patrol, INS Godavari on coming close to MV Suez, which had earlier been hijacked, tried to establish communication to ascertain safety of crew," the Defence Minister had said.

"But PNS Babur closed INS Godavari at high speed from astern and carried out a manoeuvre in gross violation of relevant regulations on navigational safety and in the process touched Godavari, marginally damaging the extended safety net on the helicopter deck," Antony said.
