As per the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the incident took place on October 16. ISPR said the Indian naval submarine was prematurely tracked and detected by a PN Long Range Patrol Aircraft.
“A strict monitoring watch has been ensured by the Pakistani Navy, during the prevailing security milieu, to guard maritime frontiers of Pakistan,” said the ISPR’s statement.
The military’s media wing said this is the third incident of this sort wherein an Indian submarine was “prematurely detected and tracked”.
“The recent act reflects the deplorable Indian machinations and the resolve and commitment of the Pakistani naval forces to guard maritime frontiers of the motherland,” stated the ISPR.
