Pakistan has detected and blocked a submarine belonging to India from entering its waters.
The Pakistan Navy intercepted the submarine because of its vigilance and operational competence.
The submarine was detected in southern parts of Pakistani waters, Daily Mail reported.
Despite the submarine’s efforts to escape detection, it was continuously tracked by Pakistan Navy Fleet and pushed well clear of our waters.
“The Indian Navy, in order to fulfill its nefarious designs, was deploying submarines,’’ the Navy spokesperson said in a statement.
The encounter speaks very high of Pakistan Navy’s Anti-Submarine Warfare capability but also reflects the commitment and resolve to defend sea frontiers of Pakistan, the spokesman said.
In order to divert attention from the indigenous freedom movement in Indian occupied Kashmir, India has persistently embarked upon a series of provocative actions against Pakistan.
Relations between Pakistan and India have been strained for several months, while cross-frontier shelling has intensified in recent weeks leading to deaths of civilians and soldiers stationed along the Line of Control (LoC) and Working Boundary.
The video footage on the encounter has gone viral in the social media.
