NEW DELHI: In a rare case in the Navy, three to four sailors were airlifted from a ship for alleged indiscipline and insubordination while the ship was on operational deployment in the Bay of Bengal off Paradip, Odisha and investigations were on. The incident happened on Wednesday on INS Sandhayak, a survey ship.
Giving details here on Thursday, officials said these sailors were reporting late for training classes on board and creating mischief during classes. When called for disciplinary action while on board, these junior sailors reportedly misbehaved, they said.
Indian armed forces are known for maintaining a very high standard of discipline. An inquiry has been ordered to investigate into the incident as there is no scope for tolerance for such incidents. The ship has been directed to disembark personnel involved in the incident to facilitate progress of investigation before she resumes her assigned task, they said.
