Dubai : A 47-year-old Indian fisherman has been shot dead on board a vessel during an armed robbery by pirates near Bahrain’s sea border. Thomas Glattus Soosai was shot in the abdomen when pirates boarded the Bahraini ship, 10 nautical miles northwest of Bahrain’s sea border, in an area known as Alrkaa, authorities said. The pirates looted the vessel before leaving Soosai and his six crew mates adrift at sea last Wednesday.
