The Pakistani army has ‘detected and stopped’ an Indian submarine invasion, Indian Navy Denies

The Pakistani military claims that an Indian warship attempted an incursion on Saturday night.

According to a statement from Pakistan’s navy, an Indian military submarine was “detected and stopped” from entering Pakistani territorial waters earlier this week — the third such alleged intrusion by an Indian submersible vehicle since 2016.

The attempted intrusion by an Indian submarine occurred on Saturday night, according to a statement published by the Pakistani military on Tuesday.

“During the current security environment, the Pakistan Navy has maintained a close monitoring watch to defend Pakistan’s maritime boundaries,” the Pakistani statement stated.

The submarine was “prematurely discovered and monitored by [Pakistan Navy] long-range maritime patrol aircraft,” according to the report.


The Indian government did not respond to the allegations right away.


The armies and governments of South Asia’s neighbours routinely level allegations against one another, generally centred on the alleged support of armed organizations operating on each other’s land.

This is the third time since 2016 that Pakistan’s military has claimed to have discovered an Indian submarine. The two prior lawsuits were filed in November 2016 and March of this year.

The claimed infiltration in 2019 came only days after a heated military confrontation in Kashmir’s disputed region, which saw both nations bomb one other’s territory and aerial combat that culminated with a Pakistani fighter plane shooting down an Indian fighter jet.

Infrared imagery showing a submarine mast was obtained on October 16 between 11:18 pm and 11:36 pm local time, according to a video accompanying the Pakistani military’s newest announcement (18:18-18:36 GMT).

The “target” in the attached film is located around 283 kilometres (176 miles) south of Karachi, Pakistan’s largest metropolis, according to the geographic location tag.

Under the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, the position would be barely inside Pakistan’s Exclusive Commercial Zone (EEZ), a region of coastal water and seabed over which nations have exclusive economic rights.

According to the UN Convention, territorial sea borders, over which nations have exclusive sovereign rights, extend to 22 kilometres (13 miles) off the coast, while the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) extends to 370 kilometres (230 miles) off the coast.

Nuclear-armed Since winning independence from the British in 1947, Pakistan and India have fought three full-scale wars. Their ties have been particularly strained since a military stalemate in 2019 over the disputed territory of Kashmir, which both countries claim.
