In a statement issued by DG ISPR Maj Gen Babar Iftikhar, he said that Indian Navy deployed the submarine against Pakistan with ulterior motives. “However, yet again through continuous vigilance and professionalism, Pakistan Navy has foiled Indian Submarine’s attempt of entering into Pakistani waters,” he said.
The military’s media wing also stated that the possibility of Indian infiltration attempts by sub-surface units was anticipated due to the prevailing security situation and ongoing Pakistan Navy Exercise SEASPARK-22. “Therefore, strict monitoring watch and stringent vigilance procedures were enforced. Resultantly, the Pakistan Navy Anti-submarine warfare unit took the lead and prematurely intercepted and tracked the latest Indian submarine Kalvari,” said DG ISPR.
