    NAVAL ADVISERS FROM FOUR COUNTRIES AND A GROUP OF TELEVISION NEWSMEN YESTERDAY (SATURDAY) INSPECTED THE INDIAN FRIGATE, BRAHMAPUTRA, IN BOMBAY HARBOUR - A SHIP WHICH PAKISTAN CLAIMED TO HAVE SUNK DURING A CLASH AT SEA ONLY HOURS BEFORE THE INDO-PAKISTAN CEASEFIRE WAS DECLARED ON SEPTEMBER 23.

    NINE HOURS BEFORE THE CEASEFIRE WAS ANNOUNCED, THE PAKISTAN PRESS AND RADIO STATED THAT THE SUBMARINE GHAZI HAD BEEN ATTACKED BY FOUR INDIAN FRIGATES, 350 MILES WEST OF BOMBAY IN THE ARABIAN SEA. THEY CLAIMED THAT THE GHAZI HAD SUNK THE LEOPARD FRIGATE, BRAHMAPUTRA IN THE ENCOUNTER. LATER, PRESIDENT AYUB KHAN, OF PAKISTAN, DECORATED THE COMMANDING OFFICER, THE FIRST LIEUTENANT AND AN ENGINE ROOM ARTIFICER OF THE GHAZI.

    REAR-ADMIRAL SAMSON, OF THE INDIAN NAVY, TOLD NAVAL ADVISERS FROM BRITAIN, THE UNITED STATES, THAILAND AND INDONESIA ABOARD THE BRAHMAPUTRA, THAT IT WAS POSSIBLE THE GHAZI HAD BEEN HIT DURING ACTION BETWEEN SHIPS OF THE TWO NATIONS IN SEPTEMBER. HE CLAIMED IT WAS POSSIBLE THAT THE GHAZI HAD LIMPED BACK TO KARACHI FOR REPAIRS. AS FAR AS THE INDIAN NAVY WAS CONCERNED, HE SAID, THE FLEET WAS INTACT.
