India Outrightly Rejects Pakistan’s Claim of Detecting Indian Submarine

India has rejected Pakistan’s claim that an Indian Navy submarine was detected by Pakistan Navy while it was trying to enter its waters, emphasising that the submarine video released by Pakistan is November 18, 2016.

India-Pakistan Navy Clash Erupts; Indian Submarine Enters Pakistani Waters

Government sources added that Pakistan is hyping up the war psychosis in order to divert attention from the war on terror. “The Pakistan Navy used its specialised skills to ward off the submarine, successfully keeping it from entering Pakistani waters. The Indian submarine was not targeted keeping in view Pakistan’s policy of peace,” a Pakistan Navy spokesperson was quoted as saying by ANI.

“Keeping the (Pakistan) government`s initiative of peace in mind, the Indian submarine was not targeted by the Pakistan Navy,” added the spokesperson. The last time the two Navies fought against each other was during the 1971 war.

The allegation by Pakistan comes at a time when the tension between India and Pakistan are quite high following the Indian Air Force airstrike at Jaish-e-Mohammad’s terror camp at Balakot in Pakistan on February 26.

Earlier on Tuesday, Indian Navy Chief Admiral Sunil Lanba had said terrorists are being trained in Pakistan to carry out operations through the sea. Addressing a gathering of global experts at the Indo-Pacific Regional Dialogue here, Lanba said the terrorists involved in February 14’s Pulwama attack were “aided by a State” that wants to create mayhem in India.

“We also have reports of terrorists being trained to carry out operations in various modus operandi, including through the medium of the sea,” he told PTI. “We recently saw the horrific scale of the extremist attack in Jammu and Kashmir about three weeks ago. This violence was perpetrated by extremists aided and abetted by a State that seeks to destabilise India,” the Navy chief said.

“We have seen how quickly terror groups evolve across the globe. A particular brand of terror can well become a global problem in near future,” Lanba added.
