An Indian fisherman on board the boat that came under fire from an American naval vessel off the Dubai coast, resulting in the death of one of his Indian colleagues, said on Tuesday the crew received no warning. India has asked the US to take action. "We are in touch with our envoys in Dubai and the US and have instructed them to take it up with the respective governments... The UAE government has already filed a case," external affairs minister SM Krishna said.

US ambassador to India, Nancy Powell, called foreign secretary Ranjan Mathai to convey her regret and to say Washington would investigate the matter.

Four other crew members - two Indians and two Emiratis - were unhurt. Indian consular officials have met the wounded.

"He says there was no warning," Indian ambassador to the UAE, MK Lokesh, told AP, reporting what one of the survivors told him. Dubai's police chief, Lt Gen Dahi Khalfan Tamim, said initial investigation suggests "the boat was on its right course and did not pose any danger".
