The Pakistan Navy thwarted an attempt by an Indian submarine to enter Pakistani waters, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said on Tuesday.

“Pakistan Navy with its unremitting vigilance and professional competence has once again detected and blocked the Indian submarine on 16 Oct 21 from entering into Pakistani waters,” the military’s media wing said in a statement.

“During the prevailing security milieu, a strict monitoring watch has been kept by Pakistan Navy to safeguard maritime frontiers of Pakistan,” the ISPR said.

It noted that it is the third incident of its kind wherein an Indian naval submarine has been prematurely detected and tracked by the navy’s Long Range Maritime Patrol Aircraft.

The ISPR said, “the recent incident reflects the deplorable Indian machinations vis-à-vis commitment and resolve of Pakistan Navy to defend maritime frontiers of the Motherland.”
