Mangaluru: A mock drill demonstrating rescue operation and training of 160 personnel were conducted by the District Administration at Uchila and Someshwara Beach with the aim of preventing oil leakage from a Syrian ship carrying oil that sank off the coast of Uchila and Someshwara.

Deputy Commissioner Dr. K. V. Rajendra, who visited the mock drill site, said that a mock drill was launched by the rescue teams in the wake of the sinking of a Syrian vessel carrying oil off the coast of the District. The ship has 160 metric tonnes of oil stock and 60 metric tonnes of the ship’s engine oil, he said.

DC informed, “In this regard, a plan is being worked out to ensure smooth extraction of oil in such a way that there is no leakage. The Indian Coast Guard, the State Government, the District Administration and the entire rescue team are cooperating to prevent oil spillage.

DC added, “In the event of an oil spillage, the people were trained by the Oil Spill Crisis team and technical experts. In today’s training, people were made aware in such a way that the environment is not destroyed despite the oil spillage in the event of a leak. The 15 Syrians inside the ship are in police custody. He said the probe into the sinking will be carried out only after the oil inside the ship is safely pulled out.”
