A 32-year-old Indian crew member of the ship “Noor 1” has died, after he was rushed to Tzanio Hospital in Piraeus, Greece. The man was staying at the Drapetsona police station when he complained of feeling unwell on Saturday and was taken to the hospital, where he died.
An autopsy and toxicology exam will be carried out in order to determine the cause of death, which remains unknown.
The man was one of the nine-member crew of the “Noor 1” when it was caught carrying two tons of heroin in June 2014 in Elefsina. All nine had been held on remand and then released after the 18-month maximum incarceration before trial had elapsed, but were staying at the police station because they were unable to rent alternative accommodations.
