Srinagar: Pakistan navy on Tuesday claimed to have thwarted move by Indian submarine to enter Pakitani waters DawnNewsTV reported on Tuesday quoting the Navy’s spokesperson.
“The Pakistan Navy used its specialised skills to ward off the submarine, successfully keeping it from entering Pakistani waters,” a statement from the spokesperson said.
This is the second time the Pakistan Navy has detected the Indian submarine trying to enter Pakistani waters since 2016.
According to the statement, the fact that an Indian submarine laden with modern technology was detected by the Pakistan Navy is a loss for the Indian navy.
Keeping the government’s initiative of peace in mind, the Indian submarine was not targetted by the Pakistan Navy, said the spokesperson.
Learning from this incident, India should also work towards peace, the statement added.
“This great feat is a testament of the Pakistan Navy’s superior skills. The Navy will keep defending Pakistan’s naval border. The force has the capability to respond to any aggression.”
The latest provocation by India comes a week after the Indian Air Force (IAF) violated Pakistani airspace on February 26. The IAF returned unsuccessful after the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) “immediately scrambled” its jets. According to Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the Indian aircraft released their payload “in haste” as they returned.
PAF the next day, on Feb 27, successfully targeted non-military targets across the Line of Control to demonstrate Pakistan’s aggressive capabilities, and shot down two Indian Air Force jets after they crossed the LoC.
An Indian Air Force pilot, Wing Commander Abhinandan, was taken into captivity of Pakistan’s armed forces. While Prime Minister Imran Khan ordered the pilot’s release as a “peace gesture”,
