Pakistan Navy foils Indian submarine’s intrusion


News Desk |

Pakistan Navy (PN) thwarted the attempt of Indian submarine to enter Pakistani waters after detecting the intrusion timely, the Navy spokesperson said on Tuesday.

“The Pakistan Navy used its specialized skills to ward off the submarine, successfully keeping it from entering Pakistani waters,” a statement from the spokesperson said.

Pakistan Navy has detected the Indian submarine second time trying to enter Pakistani waters since 2016.

 

It is a huge loss of Indian Navy and Indian government at large as even after having modern technology, Pak Navy detected its violation in no time, read the statement.

 

“The Indian submarine was not targeted keeping in view Pakistan’s policy of peace,” said a spokesperson from the PN and added that India must learn from this incident and “move towards peace”.

“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,” said Navy’s spokesperson.

Pakistan Navy has detected the Indian submarine second time trying to enter Pakistani waters since 2016.

The latest provocation by India comes a week after the Indian Air Force (IAF) violated Pakistani airspace on February 26. The IAF returned unsuccessfully 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.

Pakistan had downed two Indian aircraft on Feb 27, at least one of which was a MiG-21 Bison. The loss had triggered Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to say the results of the dogfight would have been different if India had inducted Rafale fighter jets into its air force; a comment seen as a veiled swipe at the MiG-21.
