Default 1971 Indo-Pakistan War

In the 1971 war between India and Pakistan the two navies possessed three WWII vintage cruisers: MYSORE, DELHI and BABUR. Was any of them actively used during the hostilities?

INS MYSORE was flagship of the Indian Western Fleet in December 1971 and led missile boat attacks on Karachi. Don't know about the other two.

Τhanks, I found a seemingly good source at http://www.indiandefencereview.com/s...mbs-karachi/2/
It states that Mysore was not present in the Karachi missile attacks but along with Ranjit and Betwa they sailed to carry out Operation Grand Slam, a naval bombardment of the Makran Coast, which was cancelled underway.
