INS Sindurakshak - accident while loading missile onboard suggested

UPDATE: The situation grows increasingly grim.

UPDATE: 15Aug 20:38 IST :
Still no luck.

This is an interesting new suggestion. A preliminary inquiry suggests that procedures for loading a Klub missile onboard were violated, and this caused the explosion. The Klub has a multi-stage rocket/turbojet engine, but there's an entire complex of missiles, and some of them just use a rocket. So whether it was the rocket fuel, or the turbojet fuel, or the missile warhead itself that started the blaze isn't elaborated upon.

No mention of a torpedo - at least, not yet.
