    An Indian Navy submarine caught fire after an explosion and sank on August 14. According to Reuters, about 18 sailors were trapped on board.

    Local media reports that the blast followed by a fire occurred shortly after midnight on the INS Sindhurakshak submarine, which was docked at the Naval dockyard in Mumbai. Some sailors reportedly jumped to safety and some of the injured were taken to hospital.
    It was reported that the blast was first heard by deputy chief fire officer P.S Rahandale who was on leave to attend a private engagement near the Gateway of India promenade. Rahandale contacted the fire department and other emergency services immediately.

    The submarine is largely submerged under water and a large part of it has been gutted, according to local media. The cause of the explosion is still not known.
