Indian submarine prevented from entering Pakistan waters

The Pakistan Navy detected an Indian submarine in its territorial waters and chased it away, the naval service said in a press release issued on Friday.

According to the statement, the Indian submarine was detected south of the Pakistani coast on Monday.

The submarine tried to escape detection without success as it was continuously tracked and pushed “well clear of our waters”, as the Pakistan Navy sad.

India immediately denied any presence of its vessels near Pakistan’s waters describing the Pakistan statement as “blatant lies”.

If a video circulated by a number of media houses, including Pakistan’s English-language site Dawn, is believed to be accurate, detecting the submarine should not have posed a significant challenge as it was filmed moving on the surface.

India and Pakistan are engaged in military confrontations in the Kashmir region over territorial disputes.

The Pakistan government has so far moved 8,000 people from the Pakistan-controlled Azad Jammu and Kashmir regions to “safer places”, BBC reported this week.
