India trashes Pakistan's claim of intrusion by Indian Navy submarine
New Delhi, Mar 06: Rejecting Pakistan's claim that it had thwarted an attempt by an Indian submarine to enter Pakistani territorial waters, New Delhi on Tuesday said the Pakistani claims regarding this are incorrect. According to reports, it was an old footage from November 2016, and had digitally changed the time stamp on the video.
Taking to Twitter, the Indian Navy dismissed as 'false propaganda' Pakistan's claim that it had thwarted an attempt by an Indian submarine to enter that country's territorial water.
As was stated during the Jt Press Statement on 28 Feb 19, the #IndianNavy remains deployed as necessary to protect National Maritime Interests. Over the past several days we have witnessed Pakistan indulging in false propoganda and spread of misinformation. 1/2— SpokespersonNavy (@indiannavy) March 5, 2019
"Pakistan is indulging in false propaganda and spread of misinformation. The Indian Navy does not take cognizance of such propaganda. Our deployments remain undeterred," the statement said.
Pakistan had released video footage which it claimed was an Indian submarine.
The Pakistan Navy claim came amid the latest flareup between the two nuclear-armed neighbours after the Pulwama terror attack killed over 40 CRPF jawans that resulted in India carrying out airstrikes at a Jaish- e-Mohammed training camp in Balakot.
Meanwhile, India launched a diplomatic offensive to get JeM chief Masood Azhar listed at the UN Security Council and was sharing information with every country, including all members of the UN Security Council.
