If you can remember the name of the ship it might help. I have not heard anything, but could certainly look it up. India if it’s a single ship odds are it would be a Commonwealth ship thanks to India still being a British colony back then.

There weren't many so it shouldn't be hard to figure out.

India is still in the Commonwealth today.  The rules for being a member of the Commonwealth were changed specifically so that India, a republic, could be a member without having the British monarch as their head of state.

I know a few months back there was an Indian premium being developed as a collaboration with a new ISP starting in India, but haven’t heard anything about it since.

IMHO - Putting Bomb in the name of a ship is asking for trouble with the present meta.

INS Mysore, a Fiji class and INS Delhi, a Leander were mentioned a few months back.

was confused at first since that abbreviation is pretty much identical to the Israeli navy's designations then remembered I was looking at something about indian vessels.
