    Hyderabad: Just days after a fire on submarine INS Sindhuratna led to the death of two naval officers, another fire has been reported, this time from INS Kalinga raising serious questions about the outdated fleet of the India Navy.

    A short circuit led to the fire at around 1 pm which resulted in injury to three civilians. One of the injured has been discharged while two others are being treated in a hospital. The fire is under control as per latest reports.

    Commissioned in 21 November, 1985, INS Kalinga is an Indian Navy establishment reporting to the Eastern Naval Command. It is responsible for preparing, storing and delivering advanced missiles to ships of the Eastern Fleet. INS Kalinga is a fully fledged Station with co-located units such as MARCOS (E), NAD (V), NAI (V) and MES. The station is spread over an area of 734.1 acres and consists of over 900 service and civilian personnel with their families.

    INS Kalinga is located on the Visakhapatnam - Bheemunipatnam beach road, about 40 kilometers north east of the Visakhapatnam Naval Base.

    Someone has decided in the Navy to scare the shit out of the babus/ lungi fellow.

    Could be a trick to milk more dollars for the navy or is it really that Navy has shitty quality hardware ?

    Because the defence forces and police forces do not have the right to agitate/strike for what they want.They just have to work with what they have...
