Jurisdiction before the arrival of the ship

At the time when the Admiralty suit is filed in the court the ship must already be within Indian territorial waters or jurisdiction of that state. The High Court may order arrest of any vessel which is within its jurisdiction for the purpose of providing security against a maritime claim which is the subject of an admiralty proceeding.
