In a repeat of the m.v. Wisdom episode, a much-smaller cargo vessel ran aground near the Juhu beach in north-west Mumbai on Sunday, officials said here.
The Panama-flagged vessel M.V. Pavit, which has a capacity to hold 1,000 tonnes of cargo (as against m.v. Wisdom's 10,000 tonnes) ran aground near Seven Bungalows in the morning and was suspected to have drifted from the Persian Gulf, they said.
M.V. Wisdom had got stuck on Juhu beach in June, and could be salvaged after about three weeks.
