Indian navy divers on Friday recovered three severely burned bodies of sailors who had been trapped inside a submarine damaged by twin explosions, a navy spokesman said. He added that it was doubtful that any of the other 15 sailors aboard survived.
The spokesman, Narendra Vispute, told reporters in Mumbai that the conditions of the bodies recovered early Friday morning suggest that all 18 sailors aboard were killed in the explosions in the sub's home port of Mumbai.
The 16-year-old diesel-powered, Russian-made submarine, INS Sindhurakshak, was rocked by two explosions in the torpedo compartment that sent huge fireballs into the air.
