Bangladeshi ship freed from Somali pirates, owners confirm

DESK REPORT

The Bangladeshi ship MV Abdullah, along with its 23 crew members, has been released from Somali pirates, its owner KSRM Group confirmed early Saturday morning.

Pirates hijacked the vessel in the Indian Ocean on March 12 and subsequently took it to the Somali coast.

After nine days, the pirates contacted KSRM Group to negotiate a ransom. Following intensive negotiations, the ship’s owners hinted at a resolution before Eid, suggesting that a final agreement had been reached.

“The ship, along with all crew members, has been released and is now headed towards the United Arab Emirates,” said Shahriar Jahan Rahat, Managing Director of KSRM Group.
