Chaos at Navy recruitment rally in Mumbai

Mumbai: Unruly scenes were witnessed during a Navy recruitment drive here today as security personnel were unable to control the large number of aspirants who turned up at the camp.

"There was a recruitment rally at INS Hamla, Malad, this morning for senior secondary recruits. We were expecting a good response from volunteers," an official said.
