Article on INS Khukri in " The Tribune "

An article in the popular English daily " The Tribune " on INS Khukri and INS Talwar brought back poignant memories of the last 39 years.

INS Khukri was a frigate , a dedicated anti submarine naval ship. A frigate should have been the last type of naval vessel for the enemy submarine to sink. It should have been the other way round . Indian frigates should have got the submarine and packed it off to " Old Davy Jones Locker "

There was always the buzz that PNS Hangor was very much on INS Khukri 's sonar. It is said that in war only " tried and trusted " weapons should be used .

We have lived with the pain of Khukri 's loss  all these years
