New Delhi: In the ninth accident involving Indian Navy's warships in the last seven months, an amphibious vessel was damaged when it ran aground off the coast of Vishakhapatnam.


An inquiry has been ordered by the Navy to ascertain the reasons for the mishap, which took place last week, said sources in the Navy on Sunday.

The incident was the eighth involving a Naval warship since the sinking of the submarine INS Sindhurakshak in Mumbai harbour in August last year, in which all 18 personnel on board were killed.


The Magar-class Landing Ship Tanker (LST) ran aground off the coast of Vishakhapatnam and suffered damage, said the sources.
