Indian Warships sail into Port Moresby harbour

By SCHOLAR KASSAS

INDIAN Navy Warships INS Sahayadri and INS Kolkata sailed into the nation’s Capital this morning.

The docking of the ships got the Indian community in Port Moresby rushing to get a glimpse of home.

Many Indian families in the city including the High Commissioner Shri Inbasekar Sundaramurthi and his family made their way down to the wharf.

Amongst the two warships INS Sahayadari has sailed before into Port Moresby with its last trip taken in 2018.

Captain of Sahayadari Rajan Kapoor said his ship is judged as the best amongst the 35 INS warships.

Sahayadri is one of the strong shvalik-class of guided missile frigates serving the modern Indian Navy today.

Kapoor said his team is very good at what they are doing and saying, “The captain is as good as the team”

Sahayadri was built in India and was named after a mountain range that stretches all across the western coast of India.

INS Sahayadri is a multidimensional warship that can take out attacks from the sea, air, and on land and hold around 350 sailors on board.

Captain Kapoor said this was his first sail into PNG and finds Port Moresby amazing and hopes for more visits in the coming years.

He said his ship is open to the Nationals and anyone who wished to take a tour while they still here.

The ships will be sailing off on Friday, July 4 to Sydney, Australia, and back to India.
