Panaji, Apr 15: The body of Sea Harrier pilot Lt Commander Saurav Tiwari was recovered off-Goa coast on Saturday, over a week after the aircraft crashed mid-air in the Arabian sea.

"Lt Commander Tiwari's body was recovered from sea off Grandi island at 11:51 am today," Commandar N V Kesri, Public Relation Officer of the Navy, said here in a statement.
