The Indian Navy to pull Mv Wisdom off the beach

The Indian Navy on Thursday started a salvage operation for ‘MV Wisdom’, which has been stranded at
Mumbai’s Juhu beach since Last Sunday. Navy helicopters are dropping heavy duty steel cables and other
equipments on the deck of the merchant vessel.

Once the cables are fastened on to ‘MV Wisdom’, tug boats will be used to pull out the ship to deep sea.

Navy officials and others involved in the salvage operation hope to take advantage of the high tide on Friday
morning when they plan to start the pull-out of the vessel, Director General of Shipping SB Agnihotri said.
The salvage efforts are likely to conclude by Saturday evening.
