An Indian air force plane goes missing over Bay of Bengal on 22 July.
In response to a question by Deputy Speaker M Thambi Durai, Minister of State for Defence Subhash Ramrao Bhamre said
“it was unlikely” that there would be any survivors among those aboard the missing IAF AN32 aircraft.
He added that 30 floating objects were found at sea, but no concrete evidence was available yet.
Now, merchant and commercial vessels have also joined the search.
