Indian Navy Deploys Guided-Missile Destroyers In Response To Recent Drone Attacks

The Indian Navy is deploying guided-missile destroyer ships in the Arabian Sea as a deterrent in reaction to a recent drone attack on a commerce vessel northeast of the country. The Israeli-affiliated ship, MV Chem Pluto, was hit over the weekend, which prompted the navy to launch an investigation.

Further forensic and technical examination will be carried out to ascertain the specifics of the attack, including the kind and quantity of explosives used. Preliminary reports indicate that the attack was carried out using a drone.

India would use guided missile destroyers to maintain a deterrent presence in the Indian Ocean region, reaffirming its commitment to safeguarding the safety and security of sea routes for maritime trade.

The Indian Navy has expanded its marine surveillance as part of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s administration’s strong response to the attacks. Singh promised that those behind the attacks would face harsh consequences. Iran’s foreign ministry referred to the American accusation that Iran was responsible for the attack on the MV Chem Pluto as “baseless.”

The Indian Navy has sent guided missile destroyers, such as INS Mormugao, INS Kochi, and INS Kolkata, to different locations as a deterrence in reaction to the recent wave of strikes in the Arabian Sea. The action is intended to protect commercial vessels travelling through the area and address security issues.

The navy’s continued vigilance demonstrates its dedication to the safety of marine trade in the Indian Ocean region.
