Barge accident: Maha guv felicitates Indian Navy officers for rescue efforts
Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari on Tuesday felicitated the Commanding Officers of INS Kochi and INS Kolkata, who were instrumental in saving the lives of crew members from the barge that sank off the Mumbai coast during Cyclone Tauktae in May.
The governor applauded the officers and their teams for showing exemplary courage in rescuing crew members of barge P 305, which housed personnel engaged in maintenance work of an offshore oil drilling platform of the state-run oil and gas major ONGC.
The Commanding Officer of INS Talwar Captain Partha U Bhatt could not meet the Governor due to operational commitments, the release stated.
