    OUR COLLEAGUES WERE WORKING THERE.SAFELY ESCAPED THROUGH MONKEY LADDER TO A FISHING BOAT.PROMPT RESCUE SERVICES AND FIREFIGHTING DONE BY THE AUTHORITIES.CONGRATS!!
    SURPRISINGLY THE SHIPS LIFE BOAT WAS NOT IN OPERATION MAY BE DUE TO THE PANIC SITUATION?

    This is in reference to your article where you have written about the blast on the tanker ‘Prem Divya ‘ near Fujairah Port last Thursday.

    Unfortunatley out of the two men missing from the crew,one was my own Brother ,the chief officer ROHIT SINGH.

    It is indeed very unfortunate to tell you that its been 9 days now and i have yet not received any information about my brother from the crew or their head office.

    We have tried calling the company head offices but no one has been of any help to us.We are helpless in doing anything as the only way to find any information is through the company office only.

    I request you to please suggest us on how we can take this forward or from where can we get any information about him!!

    I would request you to please reply!!

    Regards,
