According to the current developments, it has been reported that the aircraft did head to Malacca Straits, while it was trying to return to Kuala Lumpur, from where it started off. Satellite GSAT-7, or better known as Rukmini, of Indian Navy has also been activated to ensure that any clue leading to the Boeing 777-200 isn’t missed.
An official of the Navy reportedly said that Indian Navy ships do carry out anti-piracy patrols in a coordinated way with Indonesia and Malaysia, and therefore as a part of the law, they are meant to be a part of the search operations.
Ships with helicopter will be using the aircrafts for the entire operation. Also, according to a report by Times of India, the Navy is expected to check the Rukmini satellite, which has worked and offered commendable performance till now.
