    "I have been told by the Coast Guard that a ship carrying over 450 containers from Singapore to the Middle East had developed cracks and is floating towards Goa," Parrikar said.

    A ship is stranded 500 km off Goa and is floating towards the state's beaches, Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar said Tuesday.

    Parrikar also said that unconfirmed reports suggested that the ship had over 450 containers on board carrying arms and ammunition.

    "I have been told by the Coast Guard that a ship carrying over 450 containers from Singapore to the Middle East had developed cracks and is floating towards Goa," Parrikar said.

    He said some of the containers had fallen off the ship and were floating towards the coast at about 2.5 nautical miles an hour.

    "There are unconfirmed reports that the containers are carrying bombs, guns and other kind of ammunition," Parrikar said, adding that the company which owns the ship as well as the Indian Coast Guard were making efforts to repair the vessel.

    Considering the average reaction time of Indian politician it is probably the 'MOL Comfort' which is being referred to.
