Military Institute of Training (MILIT),Khadakwasla,on Wednesday celebrated Navy Day in the presence of senior officers from the three services and coast-guard besides DRDO scientists and faculty members.

On the occasion,Air Vice Marshal PP Khandekar outlined the Navy’s vision and recent strides in meeting the emerging maritime and security challenges. Publications including ‘Key Information on Technologies’ and ‘Joint Terminology for the Three Services’ were also released during the event at the Naval Experimental Bay at MILIT. Last year’s commendation awardees were also felicitated during the function.

A press release issued by Press Information Bureau,Defence Wing,said,“On December 3,1971 at 11.45 pm Indian Naval missile boats,which were earlier towed by larger ships,were lurking off Karachi port and suddenly enemy shore batteries opened fire. Almost immediately,missiles were fired by the Indian ships at enemy ships off Karachi harbour. Many ships of the Pakistan Navy were severely damaged. The last missile was targeted onto an oil storage tank,which started a massive conflagration. Maritime operations on the western seaboard during the 1971 Indo-Pak war were outstanding episodes in naval warfare in Indian waters.”

It added,“The attacks on Karachi harbour were appreciated by the world maritime community,since purely harbour defence boats were towed for hundreds of miles,to the vicinity of Karachi to launch the daring attack. It was truly a magnificent feat of military adroitness,innovative planning and resourcefulness along with the Indian Air Force. This glorious moment of the history of Indian Navy is celebrated every year as Navy Day on December 4.”
