The seamen were crew members and passengers of the Bangladeshi ship ‘Nayou’ that sunk during its voyage from Bangladesh to   Malaysia. When the incident occurred ‘Nayou’ had 200 passengers and crewmen on board.

The Vietnamese ship continued to look for other victims of Nayou in the territorial waters of Bangladesh. It has attempted to contact the owner of Nayou for cooperation.

The Vietnamese ship will carry the victims to Singapore if they fail to contact the owner.
