NEW DELHI (AP) — Indian police said Sunday that they have arrested five fishermen for selling 1,500 liters (330 gallons) of diesel fuel to crew members of a U.S.-owned ship who have been arrested on charges of illegally transporting weapons and ammunition in Indian waters.
The five worked for a local shipping agent in Chennai, the capital of the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu, said police officer M. Durai. He did not give further details.
Indian Foreign Secretary Sujata Singh said eight crew members and 25 security guards aboard the MV Seaman Guard Ohio were arrested Friday after they failed to produce documents allowing them to carry the weapons.
The ship, which was detained Oct. 12, is owned by Virginia-based security company AdvanFort but is registered in Sierra Leone. AdvanFort denies the charges.
