The BJP has said the National Investigation Agency should investigate the U.S. Seaman Guard Ohio having visited Kochi. In a statement here on Monday, BJP State Cell Coordinator and Trustee of the Cochin Port B. Gopalakrishnan said the NIA should check details of the movements of the crew, their activities and visitors to the ship.

“Did the Port authorities follow all the requisite procedures for allowing a foreign ship to enter the port? Did not the Coast Guard spot the ship then?” asked Mr. Gopalakrishnan.
