Antony is responsible for this. By resiging he will go Scot free. He should be made aware of his responsibilities. What kind of a government is this. Killing your own sailors. Before being kicked out congis want to destroy as much as possible rather than fading away into obsolescence.

Shiv, As its known now, it was not the battery failure but cable or material failure.So its not MOD's fault but of Indian Navy's. There must be some safety SOP lapse which led to this problem. Please do not spread the perception that Kilo submarines are bad. They remain one of the best submarine platforms in world and has been ordered by several countries. These subs have 35 years of lifetime so writing them off at 25-26 years of age with refits would be a stupid idea.Vietnam has just ordered six of these. Algerian Navy has older Kilos than us… Read more »

Have NAVY/MOD reworked on the Security and Access related SOPs? As of now any civil labor,workers or technician can enter Mazgaon Dock or Naval Dockyard along with their Tiffin Box and Tools and Tool-Box. Some of these Labors,workers and Technicians have access to these Warships and Subs of Navy for Repair & misc work etc …and there is no strict procedure to check them or their luggage,tiffin boxes and tool boxes manually(strictly) or through X-Ray machines like done in Airport Security Check-In. Some labors can even enter War-Ships and Submarines, while loading ration and other items before the ships proceed… Read more »

Hi Shiv,

Food for thought!

As responsible journalists can you guys choose a better set of words than "Coffins"?

1st the Migs now the Subs don't you guys owe the Pilots, Submariners & their families, who put their lives at risk a better deal.

Report don't sensationalize!

Aroorji,

As its clear now, batteries were fine and the fire started in the mess.

Did you check the facts before reporting this hearsay? Will Indian media ever mature or keep peddling its own agenda?

Shame on you all for making news items no better than rumours!!

Shiv,

Looks like you misreported big time. Subs are fine, it was a different kind of failure, more related to the human kind.

So where are corrections?? Do acknowledge them though!!!

Kilo class Subs are just fine as this class of Subs are the largest sold subs in the world. Indian kilo subs started induction in Navy during 1983 onwards..and till now(around 30 years have passed) ..no major issues heard…neither from another country nor in India. So why suddenly NOW ,when India is about to release RFP for next Submarine P-75I purchase worth of 50,000 – 60,000 crore of Rupees…. we are getting this issues ?? Who is tampering/loosening the wires in the Battery compartment (where inflammable hydrogen is leaking from 30 years old batteries ) to set/arrange a wild spark/short… Read more »

Nothing changes. Consider the following points: a. The MoD has prevailed upon the Navy to save the MoD's skin by declaring no problem with the batteries, thereby putting onus on navy itself. b. Burnt cables don't rule out a battery issue. There could have been an overload or discharge issue. Either way, the deceased officer's warning is totally accurate. There are severe battery issues on the Kilos. Most such incidents go unreported, that's true. What the BoI reveals does not affect what the late officer had to say about the general state of the submarines. c. The batteries were replaced… Read more »

It seems that there is something substantially wrong with the silent arm. No one is telling it openly but there is something fishy. 1. Batteries are fine and EXIDE batteries have been proven worldwide. 2. Subs have no age problem and they are silent and sound without doubt. 3. The accidents are varied and have happened in a very short period of 7 months. Even more important is the media focus on Navy which has been constant since Sindhurakshak blast. For exmple, USS Taylor, the missile destroyer ran aground in Turkey recently and its captain was dismissed. It was not… Read more »

The way the whole incident was played by Media is extremely painful.
Kindly refrain from sensationalizing the issue for TRP.

Lot of dirt is been thrown at Chief and RM, you guys owe nation an apology!
