Pakistan Navy Detects Indian submarine, Foils Intrusion

Days after Pakistan shot down two Indian aircraft in a tit-for-tat response for violation of its airspace, the Pakistan Navy had foiled Indian Navy’s attempt to intrude into its waters.

The Pakistan Navy had detected an India submarine and stopped it from entering Pakistani waters. The Pakistan Navy spokesperson had said that the force had foiled every attempt of Indian submarine to avoid being detected.

Learning a lesson from this incident, India too should show its inclination towards peace.

Navy spokesman has said that it was the second occasion since 2016 when it detected an Indian submarine trying to enter Pakistani waters. The navy had also released video of the submarine with the grainy black and white footage showing only what appeared to be a periscope above water.

“The submarine was detected and localized in Pakistan’s maritime zone on 04 March 19. The submarine could have been easily engaged and destroyed had it not been Pakistan’s policy to exercise restraint in the face of Indian aggression and to give peace a chance to prevail,” the statement had read.
