Cracking down on criminal activities

The recent efforts by the Navy were in response to the Chief of Naval Staff’s call to eliminate criminal activities in the maritime domain. The Flag Officer Commanding, Eastern Naval Command, also declared operations to combat crimes, particularly those related to crude oil theft. These crimes have been contributing to the recent increase in crude oil production.
