Mumbai, May 12: Amid the ongoing battle against COVID-19, Indian Naval Ship Tarkash brought two containers with 20 MT liquid medical oxygen each and 230 oxygen cylinders to Mumbai from Qatar on Wednesday, officials said.
The Indian Navy has deployed its various ships to bring oxygen and other medical equipment to the country under operation 'Samudra Setu II'.
The Oxygen containers were facilitated by the French Mission as part of ‘Oxygen Solidarity Bridge’ and Oxygen cylinders were gifted by Indian diaspora in Qatar, they added.
The consignment was handed over to the Civil Administration in Maharashtra.
Last year, the Navy had launched Operation Samudra Setu as part of the Vande Bharat evacuation mission under which it brought back to India around 4,000 stranded Indians from Maldives, Sri Lanka and Iran.
