NEW DELHI: The move to hand over the Indian sailors held captive in Guinea to Nigeria is gaining momentum. The army has taken 15 people who were in the detention center to Luba port. According to the sailors, the situation is critical. The sailors are protesting by refusing to board the battleship. Kollam native Vijith said in a video message that the position of the sailors is that they will not board the ship until the sailors admitted to the hospital arrive.

At the same time, Union Minister of State for External Affairs V Muraleedharan said that efforts are being made to bring back the sailors detained in Guinea. "The embassies in Nigeria and Guinea are continuing their efforts. A case has been registered against the sailors in Nigeria as well. Both countries are cooperating with the diplomatic efforts. The relatives of the sailors need not worry," Muraleedharan said.
