This maybe a report of the same action C L I C K

There is now a dispute between Thailand and India, The boat belonged to Thai Fishermen, which the Indian navy sank. The Indians claim that the Thai Fishermen were assisting the Pirates (which is nonsense!)

I suppose it is nonsense but has there ever been a war fought with no collateral damage? I doubt it. If the odd innocent is sunk then so be it. The end justifies the means and better that one or two innocent vessels go to the bottom by positive action against pirates than very many more do so by taking the cowards way out and letting the pirates get away with murder - and that is not a figure of speech!

The west has been following the politically correct route to perdition for too long with nothing to show for it but embarrassment and bank transfers to the bad guys. If the Indians are willing to take up the baton where we left off, or rather dropped it, then good for them.

The bottom line is, is nobody does anything nothing will get done! Well done India - again!

No problem with the sinking - however the Thai hostages were arrested by the Indian Police on arrival at the port.
