The ship with her 23 crew members aboard embarked on its journey back to Jiangsu province earlier this month.
The ship set off from Nantong in July last year, unloaded at Haldia port in December, and was then detained by the Indian court due to debt issues.
The company that owned the ship went bankrupt last December and failed to pay refueling expenses to overseas oil companies.
The Consulate-General of China in Kolkata then made efforts to help the Chinese ship and kept coordinating with the Indian side to resolve this issue.
On March 3, the Bombay High Court ordered to release of the cargo ship.
The freighter “Union Demeter” is owned by Nanjing Tranvast Holdings Limited and all crew members are from Nanjing Yuanteng shipping company. – CRI
