मुंबई। भारत-पाकिस्तान के बीच 1971 में हुए युद्ध के दौरान दुश्मनों के दांत खट्टे करने वाले भारत के पहले विमानवाहक पोत आईएनएस विक्रांत के सेवामुक्त होने के बाद उसे तोड़ा जा रहा है। इस पोत को खरीदने वाले मालिक ने शुक्रवार को कहा कि इस प्रक्रिया में सात-आठ महीनों का समय लगने की संभावना है। गुरूवार को इसके आगे के हिस्से पर पहला हथौड़ा चला।

इस पोत को ई-नीलामी में मुंबई की आईबी कॉमर्शियल्स लिमिटेड ने खरीदा है। कंपनी के निदेशक और अब पोत के मालिक अब्दुल करीमा जाका ने यह जानकारी दी। जाका ने दक्षिण-पूर्व मुंबई के पाउडर बंडर स्थित ब्रेकिंग यार्ड में आईएएनएस से कहा, ""सभी कानूनी और तकनीकी औपचारिकताएं पूरी करने तथा संबंधित एजेंसियों से मंजूरी मिलने के बाद पोत को तोड़ने के लिए लगभग 200 लोगों के एक दल को लगाया गया है।""

इसे पहले एचएमएस हरक्यूलस के नाम से जाना जाता था। इसे भारत में 1957 को लाया गया था और 16 फरवरी, 1959 को नौसेना में शामिल किया गया। 31 जनवरी, 1997 को इसे सेवामुक्त कर दिया गया था। 71 वर्ष पुराने इस पोत को स्टील और अन्य महत्वपूर्ण सामग्रियों के लिए अंतत: तोड़ा जा रहा है। -

Wasn't it supposed to have been transformed into a museum, or is it the Viraat?

It was finally concluded that Maintaining at Govt funds would have been very expensive.

the eyes above the sky also recorded this sad moment of such an ex-combat vessel with a long and rich history...

Jun 10th , INS Vikrant heading her final destination-- the scrapping yard opposite the MDL shipyard (the last vessel of P15A class is in the Wet basin for the fitting-out)...

not really sure if this is INS Vikrant.

IIRC she was without engines or they were not in working condition since she has been retired long ago...and the ship in the pic without any auxiliary vessel surrounding it and helping her out seems impossible.

She was waiting there for high tide. When that came she was pulled on-shore.

it seems she has been towed out the Mumbai Navy station for quite a while and anchored outside the scrapping yard waiting for the Judgment Day..
is there some group trying to keep/Save this old vessel via the High Court?...

ya..there was.It went upto apex court. But they couldn't do much. Anyways IN did everything they could to save it... refurbished its interior to make it more appealing to potential investors et all but alas it wasn't to be materialized.
