It gave no reason for the blast but said a board of inquiry would investigate.
"The ship's crew responded immediately and quickly brought the situation under control. No major material damage has been reported," the navy said in a statement.
The explosion happened in an internal compartment on board a naval vessel, Ranvir, which had been on operational deployment from the Eastern Naval Command since November and was due to return to base port shortly, the statement said. ■
