NEW DELHI: Indian naval ship Trishul on Friday thwarted a piracy attempt on an Indian merchant ship in the Gulf of Aden, official sources here said.

"INS Trishul thwarts piracy attempt on Indian ship MV Jag Amar at 1230 hrs this noon in the Gulf of Aden," Navy's Spokesperson Captain D.K. Sharma said in a tweet.

The details of the anti-piracy operation were yet awaited.

In May, INS Sharda, deployed for anti-piracy operations in the Gulf of Aden, rescued a Liberian merchant vessel Lord Mountbatten from a pirate attack.

In April, INS Mumbai, Tarkash, Trishul and Aditya, which were passing through the Gulf of Aden on way to deployment to the Mediterranean sea, had saved another merchant ship MV OS 35 from pirates.
