Mumbai port to reopen by Sunday

New Delhi: Mumbai port will resume normal operations by Sunday, environment minister Jairam Ramesh told Parliament on Tuesday.

India’s busiest port, was shut down after a weekend collision of two cargo ships off Mumbai’s coast, triggering an oil spill and hurtling containers into the shipping channel.

Ramesh said leakage of oil from the ships had been contained.
