The two Indian Navy officers, who lost their lives in the crash of Dornier-228 Maritime surveillance aircraft, will be cremated with full military honours in their native hometowns on Sunday.

Bodies of co-pilot, Lieutenant Abhinav Nagori, and flight observer Lieutenant Kiran Shekhawat, were recovered after the plane crashed in the Arabian Sea off the coast of Goa on Tuesday night around 10 pm.
