NEW DELHI, February 26. /ITAR-TASS/. From four to five Indian naval sailors were taken to hospital after fumigation onboard the diesel-powered submarine Sinduratna at the Indian port of Mumbai, New Delhi Television Limited (NDTV) reported, noting that the incident onboard the submarine and exact number of injured people are under investigation.
No serious damages were found onboard Sindhuratna after fumigation incident, Hindu newspaper reported. The incident occurred at about 06:00 local time (00:30 GMT), when the submarine was passing sailing trials near the Indian port of Mumbai. The submarine is afloat now.
The submarine Sinduratna was built at the shipyard Krasnoye Sormovo in the Russian Volga River city of Nizhny Novgorod for India in 1988. The submarine has a water displacement of 2,300 tons, length of 72.6 meters and a surface speed of 18 knots or 33.3 kph.
Her modernization was finalized at the shipyard Zvezdochka in the Russian northern city of Severodvinsk in 2002. Notably, the cruise missile system Club-S to hit surface vessels, submarines, ground targets at a distance of around 200 kilometers, as well as new sonar and navigation systems and the combat information and control system, were mounted on the submarine.
Eighteen people died, as the Russia-built diesel-powered submarine Sindhurakshak sank in the port of Mumbai on August 14, 2013.
