MUMBAI: Five vigilant Indian Navy personnel averted a major disaster by jumping into the waters off the Naval Dockyard after two indigenously built immediate support vessels (ISVs) caught fire early on Tuesday. Both vessels sank and the salvage operation began in the afternoon, but the vessels were yet to be winched out by evening.
ISVs have on-board heavy machine guns and advanced radar and navigation equipment, and can carry out day and night surveillance and rapid insertion and extraction of marine commandos for military intervention.
need of the hour is to review Indian navy lapses and thorough equipment check. detailed verification of naval personal is also important cause it''s happening too frequently with navy. Commendable effort by naval officers by avoiding a bigger tragedy.
What was the cause of fire ? Is that some foreign/non navy personnel or isolated incident or something else.. Citizens of our country has right to know the assets that are destroyed due to incidents like this..
Two boats at the same time during heavy rains???? Defies Logic.
They now expert in burning ships
Very Sad! Hope all the NAVY personnel are safe and there is nothing to affect their health!
Kudos to the men who averted disaster. but was it sabotage? needs to be investigated
Who approved the Quality?
Is this a case of sabotage or sheer carelessness ?
