Indian crew remain on board and were visited by representative of 2 prospects buyers. However, unfornately, a sale did not materialze. ITF have reiterated the advice to Indian Embassy to facilitate the repatriation of the crews, because the continued stay of Indian crew on the vessel looks useless. According to Indian crew report, 2 Russian owner's representative are on board and ashorement of the time.
