Mumbai: The INS Sindhughosh, which had a close shave last week while entering the harbour here, on Tuesday left the port on a patrolling mission.

The submarine left the Mumbai harbour on a patrolling mission, Navy sources said here, stressing that the vessel was in good condition and had not suffered any damage.

The INS Sindhughosh is a Kilo Class submarine of the Navy procured from Russia.

Last week on Friday, the submarine had encountered a situation where there was very less water in the harbour but held to its position using ropes and other means but was not grounded, they said.

In August last year, Navy lost its latest submarine INS Sindhurakshak after an explosion in its torpedo section killing all the 18 personnel on board.
