Indian Navy responds over media reports of Indian submarine attempted incursion in Pakistan maritime borders
NEW DELHI - Indian Navy responds over media reports of Indian submarine attempted incursion in Pakistan maritime borders.
Indian Navy dismissed Pakistan’s claim that an Indian submarine had sought to enter Pakistani waters. “Over the past several days, we have witnessed Pakistan indulging in false propaganda and spread of misinformation.
The Indian Navy does not take cognisance of such propaganda,” the statement said.
India’s military deployments “remain undeterred” and the navy “remains deployed as necessary to protect national maritime interests,” it added.
The Pakistan Navy claimed it used special skills to thwart the Indian submarine.
Pakistan also released a purported video of an Indian submarine trying to sneak into its waters. The image showed the footage was recorded at 2035 hours on March 4.
People familiar with developments said all major powers with a presence in the Indian Ocean knew no Indian naval vessel was in the vicinity of Pakistani waters at that time.
The Pakistan Navy had also claimed the Indian submarine was not targeted in view of the country’s “policy of peace”.
