The Indian Coast Guard members on Friday evacuated an ailing Indonesian national from a merchant vessel off Diu coast, officials said.

He was shifted for treatment.

The Indian Coast Guard posted on X: "@IndiaCoastGuard  Ship C-149 conducted MEDEVAC of an #Indonesian crew suffering from stomach pain and high fever from an #Iranian flagged vessel MV Wave 47 N miles South-West of #Diu on 19 Jan."

"Subsequently, the patient shifted to the hospital for further medical management," the X post further said.

The Indian Coast Guard (ICG) rescued 182 pilgrims stranded on a grounded ferry off Kakdwip in West Bengal on January 16.

"Merchant Vessel ‘Swasthya Sathi’ was ferrying about 400 pilgrims from Ganga Sagar Mela at Sagar Island to Kakdwip when it ran aground due to extremely poor visibility," read a Ministry of Defence statement.
