SHAH ALAM: The Indonesian military today confirmed that missing submarine KRI Nanggala has sunk following the discovery of items believed from the vessel. A scan also showed a possible wreck of the submarine wreck at a depth of 850m.
BALI: There is evidence that the missing Indonesian KRI Nanggala 402 submarine has sunk, while objects have been recovered, said military chief Hadi Tjahjanto on Saturday (Apr 24).
Speaking at a press conference, he said: “The navy has found oil spill and parts of objects which is evidence that the KRI Nanggala has sunk.”
Navy chief Yudo Margono added: “Over the past few days, we’ve recovered debris and items from the last location that the submarine was diving.”
Based on the above it is unlikely there will be survivors of the 53 souls on board. It is unclear whether the submarine rescue vessels from Singapore, India and Malaysia would still be involved in SAR operations.
Malaysian Defence offers condolences to the families and loved ones of the crew.
