"Based on a request from the German Embassy, the patient was landed at INS Shikra by a ship-borne Super Lynx helicopter. The air evacuation from German Naval Ship Bayern located about 275 kms from Mumbai was coordinated by the Western Naval Command," the Navy said.

The officer was taken to INHS Asvini, where he was attended to by a multidisciplinary team of specialist doctors and underwent several tests.
