New Delhi/IBNS: Three naval personnel have died of injuries following an explosion onboard Indian Navy's destroyer ship INS Ranvir at the Mumbai dockyard. 

"In an unfortunate incident today at Naval Dockyard Mumbai, three naval personnel succumbed to injuries caused by an explosion in an internal compartment onboard INS Ranvir," a Defence Ministry release said.

"No major material damage has been reported," it added.

"The ship's crew responded immediately and quickly brought the situation under control," the release said.

INS Ranvir was on cross-coast operational deployment from the Eastern Naval Command since Nov 2021.

It was due to return to base port shortly.

INS Ranvir, the first of the Ranvir class destroyers, was commissioned into the Indian navy on April 21, 1986.
