Dubai :  

The Indian Consulate General said on Saturday in Dubai that five Indian sailors, who were stuck on an UAE ship for months over non-payment of their salaries, will be returning home.

The sailors were stuck on the Sharjah Moon ship. The names of the sailors are Subith Sukumaran from Kerala, Amit Chandel from Himachal Pradesh, Naib S from Haryana, Vikram S from Punjab and Harendra S from Uttar Pradesh.

“With our persistent efforts five Indian sailors of Sharjah Moon stuck for many months returning home tonight,” the Consulate General of India in Dubai tweeted.

“We had intervened earlier to send back captain of the ship Jaiprakash-Uttarakhand on July 1,” it added.

The consulate also thanked its team, the UAE’s Federal Transport Authority and Comptroller General of Panama for their joint effort in helping the sailors.

The consulate had earlier said that the sailors had not been paid their salaries for about 6-12 months and the owner of the ship was refusing to cooperate.
