Sinking of Indian Submarine in Bombay Naval Dock
A few days back the inadequacy of the Indian navy was exposed. A Kilo class attack submarine exploded in Bombay dock killing 18 sailors including 3 officers. The submarine was a Russian submarine( purchased from Russia) and had just returned after an extensive refit. The cause of the armed submarine which was to proceed on a simulated attack mission of the coast of Pakistan is a mystery. Naval experts have pointed out that teh submarine could not have exploded on its own as there are many safety layers.
