There were 26 sailors from various countries aboard, and all of them were rescued. Most of the containers in the ship had sunk and floated away.

Items like refridgerators and football were found in kasargod,karwar and Lakshadweep shores and it is suspected that the items belonged to the same ship.As there is fear that the gas may leak if they are moved, the containers remain at the beach.
