INS Vikrant Finally Sold For Scrap, Activist Moves Apex Court

By DMO Affiliate

India's first aircraft carrier, INS Vikrant has finally been auctioned to a ship-breaker for Rs.60 crore and an activist Wednesday moved the apex court in a last ditch bid to save the vessel which saw action in the 1971 India-Pakistan war. It was sold through an auction to Mumbai's IB Commercials Pvt. Ltd., but details are awaited. The once-imposing vessel, commissioned by the Indian Navy in 1961, was decommissioned in 1997 and has been kept on anchor at the Naval Dockyard in Mumbai.
