NEW DELHI (PTI): Around 50 Indian Navy vessels are currently deployed in sea lanes, including in areas of India's maritime interest and in anti-piracy operations, the Navy said on Tuesday.

The Indian Navy has wider presence in the backyard, the Indian Ocean Region, which is also witnessing an increasing presence of the Chinese Navy.

It also has mission based deployments from the Persian Gulf to the Malacca Straits and from northern Bay of Bengal to the east coast of Africa and southern Indian ocean.
