New Delhi, Nov 18: Indian Navy has rubbished reports in the Pakistan media claiming that their forces spotted an Indian submarine in their waters.

A top intelligence official told OneIndia that the information that Pakistan has put out is wrong. He further added that Pakistan is trying to spread false information in a bid to cover up its wrong doings along the border.

According to a Pakistan Navy spokesperson, their fleet units "chased" the Indian submarine until it left Pakistani territory, Geo TV reported.

The spokesperson had said that the Pakistani Navy's ability to "push back" the submarine was a testament to the country's anti-submarine warfare capabilities.

Commodore (Retd) Syed M. Obaidullah, commenting on the incident, told Geo TV that the Indian submarine was a Type 209 which is one of the most lethal submarines in today's world. He added that the submarine was headed towards the Balochistan coast.
