Indian divers find another body on stricken submarine
MUMBAI (AFP) - Indian navy divers have recovered another burnt body from a submarine that exploded in Mumbai as they battled against the odds to find 12 remaining crewmen, the navy said on Sunday.
The diesel-powered INS Sindhurakshak exploded and sank in a military dockyard early Wednesday, dealing a setback to India's naval ambitions just days after it unveiled its first domestically made aircraft carrier.
Eighteen crewmen were on board when the submarine went down.
"They located and brought up the body of the sixth crew member just forward of the control room despite" poor visibility "and mangled metal", the navy said in a statement, adding that the body was discovered late Saturday.
