Body found in search for missing India fighter pilot
The Russian MiG-29K jet hit the water off the coast of western Goa state on November 26. One of the two officers on board was rescued.
The military launched a massive air and sea search for the missing officer, deploying helicopter teams and diving units.
"Mortal remains of a human body have been recovered in the vicinity of the wreckage site," the air force said in a statement, adding that all parts of the jet had been spotted using sonar and underwater cameras.
"The samples are being sent for DNA testing for confirmation of identity."
The military has sought to modernise its ageing fighter jet force, particularly in recent years amid tensions with nuclear-armed neighbours China and Pakistan.
Numerous crashes in the past few decades led to some of the planes being dubbed "flying coffins" because of their poor safety record.
