^^ whats vizag?-
^^ whats vizag?-
and GOD does take part in these cases Good Vs Evil
anyways back on topic IN can say whatever fits their strategy but the its a great coincidence (if its an accident) that pak sub came all the way from Arab ocean to Vizag and met an accident there common sense doesn't accept it
gimme a neutral source proving ur claim
u guys also came with these baseless data claiming 1 pak soldier= 10indian soldier , 1 pak pilot shot down 5 indian pilot
while reality is something different .90000 pak soldiers surrendered in front of 20000 indian soldier
now if u want i can give u link also (neutral link)
Ghazi fell for this trap and manouvered vigourously underwater. It had also laid mines in the area which were cleared by our mine sweepers. As the fleet sailed out at high speeds to make a break for deep waters, a loud explosion was heard under water and next day fishermen reported floating debries and fishing nets getting stuck underwater.
Indian naval diver searched the area and found the wreackage of Ghazi. It had sunk in relatively shallow waters. There were no signs of an hit by a weapon. Than how did it sink. Some of the possible explanations as given out by Indian Navy were
It sank while trying to avoid getting into the way of INS Rajput as Rajput had taken a route out of harbour which brought it very close to Ghazi. Probably the CO of Ghazi thought that Rajput has detected its position and so it manouvered to run away from the area.
Probably it sank as the PN was relatively less experienced to operate this sub and they ventured too close to the harbour to have look at the fleet to confirm the presence of Vikrant thereby got into shallow waters which restricted its ability to manouver. As it tried to run away from Rajput it hit the bottom of the sea and exploded.
That probably while manouvering at high speeds under water to run away from Rajput, it hit one of the mines which it had laid and sank
Lastly it probably sank due to hydrogen explosion from its batteries which were not properly charged at that time of night as the Eastern fleet had started the "Break out to Sea" manouver
So as you all can see that whatever caused the sinking of Ghazi, No Indian weapon was involved in destroying it. However INS Rajput was given the credit as it was closest to the Position of Ghazi and explosion was heard just after Rajput, one of the last ships to break out had left the harbour. AND Rajput did maximum amount of depth charging in the general area of Ghazi.
1. I have heard versions from PN and BN officers who had served in Gazi earlier. There have been discussion by some ex-seamen in our TV channels. This is what I gather, but I do not remember all the names.
2. The original CO was a Pathan Officer, a Khan, who was an excellent submariner and a top PN officer. His crucial XO was Commander Rasul, a Bengalee officer, and again an excellent submariner who knew the sub inside out. The communication officer was Lieut Nizam, another Bengalee. A lot of the crew was Bengalee.
3. When war was imminent as per policy all Bengalees were grounded. But Khan refused to sail without his XO Rasul and the Bengalee crew. He had a very valid reason. A new XO and new crew would screw up.
4. The sub was ordered to lay mines off-Vyzag and then go to northern Bay of Bengal guarding Chittagong harbor.
5. They say Khan and Rasul would not have ventured so close to Vyzag coast where a new set of officers and crew could not handle the sub. The accident seems to have occurred when laying mines. When the accident occurred IN contacted HQ, BDF at Kolkata to get a briefing on the sub by available Bengalee ex-crew who were then part of the guerrilla navy of Mukti Bahini organized under Commander Samant,IN (later Coast Guard Chief of India).
6. Rasul, Nizam and all the crew had later served in BN. Khan left service in disgust and was quickly picked up by one of the Gulf states to organize their maritime defense.
