Six Indian Navy officers were detained in Goa’s port town of Vasco for getting into a brawl allegedly under the influence of alcohol at a bar and restaurant late on Thursday night.

The Vasco police said the six officers are attached to INS Gomati, a Godavri- class guided-missile frigate of the navy. They were detained for two hours for picking up a fight with the restaurant employees.

The frigate sailed to Vasco, some 35km from Panaji, from Mumbai in the morning.

Inspector in-charge of Vasco police station Nolasco Raposo said, the six were sent to a state-run health facility late in the night for medical examination to ascertain whether they were under the influence of alcohol.

They reportedly got into the brawl around 10pm after the restaurant refused to serve them alcohol after the bar was closed.

The naval personnel have been identified as Pradeep Noutiyal,33, Ashish Kumar, 28, Sanjay Kumar, 32, S Choudhury,30, Manvendra Singh,24 and Amit Chandra, 28.

They were later released.
