Pilot boarded the vessel to enter and proceed to inner roads on the 15th at 15.00 hours. Whilst shifting from outer to inner roads, closer sea boys 09 and 10, it drifted aside and ran aground in the edge of the main channel. Five tugboats were employed to pull vessel back to deeper waters. However, the operation was not very easy. The tugs have worked all night long without moving it. The tugs managed to move the vessel and make it afloat again only this morning 02.30 hours during high water. Now the vessel is anchored safety at inner roads. The reasons for grounding is not very clear. The naval authority will call an official inquiry to find out how it happened. Whilst vessel was aground, navigation was suspended in that area. It became normalized only this morning 06.00 hours.
