The dead US ship Exxon Valdez has been rejected by all other countries but it is currently in Indian waters. Directorate General of Shipping, Mumbai is wondering why is this illegal dead ship which is currently located off Mumbai coast not leaving Indian waters despite non-compliance with the Supreme Court order of May 3, 2012. It was renamed Oriental Nicety. The ship was responsible for the disastrous March 1989 oil spill that dumped 11 million gallons of oil into Alaska’s Prince William Sound.
