Marine Commando Dies During Para Jump Training In Indian Navy, Inquiry Ordered

The Indian Navy’s special forces marine commando died during a training exercise in Panagarh, West Bengal, on Wednesday.
People who know about the case say that Chandaka Govind died while doing a para leap from an airplane.
The Indian Navy claimed in a tweet that a petty officer named Govind died while taking part in a training exercise.
The Navy tweeted, “Adm R Hari Kumar, CNS, and all personnel of the Indian Navy pay tribute to Chandaka Govind, Petty Officer, who died during a training exercise at Panagarh on April 5, and send their deepest condolences to his family.”
People mentioned above indicated that Govind was a member of the Marine Commando Force, which is the Indian Navy’s most elite special forces. (Marcos).
Govind was found at the entrance of a plant in Barjora in the Bankura district. He was wearing a tan jumpsuit and a helmet.
On his shoulders was a parachute that was only half open. He was sent to the Barjora Super Specialty Hospital, where physicians pronounced him dead.
Admiral R. Hari Kumar, the Chief of Naval Staff, and everyone in the Navy sent their condolences after Govind died.
The death of the commando is being looked at by people at a high level.
“A Court of Inquiry (CoI) has been set up to look into what happened.” At first glance, it looks like the poor soldier’s primary parachute didn’t deploy. He might have chosen to use his emergency chute, but it might not have worked. An investigation will find out what really went wrong. “As the crow flies, Barjora is only about 20 km from Panagarh, so it’s clear why he landed there,” an official told IANS.
