Bulker arrest ordered

An Indian court has ordered the arrest of a Thome-managed bulker following a collision with a fishing boat.

Kerala high court wants the 59,000–dwt Miletus (built 2009), which trades in Navig8's Supra8 pool, held at Bhavnagar after an incident on 6 June, the Times of India reported.

Police said the fishing vessel Kairali-2 was struck by a merchant ship 10 miles off the Kerala coast.

Nine men on board were rescued by another boat.

The owner has filed an admiralty suit.
