Southern Naval Command Chief Rear Admiral S S Jamwal was killed at a firing range incident at INS Dronacharya in Kochi, Naval sources said on Tuesday.

The 51-year-old officer was killed when he was accidentally hit by a bullet in the head while a training session was underway at the firing range, Navy sources said, adding that a probe has been initiated into the incident.

INS Dronacharya, a gunnery school, is located about 10 km from INS Venduruthy, which is the main Naval Base in Kochi.
