The Indian navy captured 61 pirates who jumped into the Arabian Sea to flee a gunfight and fire on the hijacked ship from which they had staged several attacks, a navy statement said Monday.

Two Indian navy ships also rescued 13 crew members from the fishing boat Sunday night, nearly 695 miles (1,100 kilometers) off Kochi in southern India, the statement said.

The pirates had hijacked the Mozambique-flagged Vega 5 in December and had used it as a mother ship — a base from which they staged several attacks in the vast waters between East Africa and India.

It is so nice to see that India together with a few other countries has the guts to deal with these vermin of the seas: all whilst our own governments are more concerned about avoiding possible problems and political incorrectness.

Thank you India!

Yes, it is nice that pirates get captured and hopefully jailed for a long long time.

In the mean time here is a NY Times on sentencing the Pirates captured by the US Navy. These were the ones that attached a naval ship and they were sentenced to life.
