New Delhi: The Supreme Court today dismissed a PIL seeking a court-monitored probe into the fire tragedy in Indian Navy submarine INS Sindhuratna and a compensation of Rs 1 crore each for relatives of the two naval officers who died in the incident.


A bench headed by Chief Justice R M Lodha declined to pass any direction on the petition which claimed the officers died allegedly due to technical and maintenance failure of batteries in the submarine.

The petition had sought a court-monitored probe to ascertain whether there was a timely provision of batteries and other safety equipment.

The PIL, filed by advocates Subrata Das and N Rajaraman, had also sought a direction for producing the communication between the Defence Ministry and the Navy Command relating to the maintenance of submarines, particularly Sindhuratna.
