India has handed over an off-shore patrol vessel, Varuna, to Sri Lanka. It is to enhance maritime co-operation between the two counties. The ship was earlier decommissioned with traditional honours to facilitate the handing over at Kochi, reports say.

“The handing over of the Indian Coast Guard Offshore Patrol Vessel to Government of Sri Lanka for training and surveillance purposes is a part of India’s continuing efforts for cementing the historical and cultural ties between the two countries,” the report further states.
