Pakistani navy tracked Indian submarine

Pakistani navy tracked Indian submarineThe Pakistani navy detected an Indian submarine off the Pakistani coast and prevented it from entering its waters, Reuters reported on Friday, citing countries officials.

The submarine was detected "south of the Pakistani coast" on Monday, the Pakistani navy said in a press release.

"Thereafter, despite the submarine's desperate efforts to escape detection, it was continuously tracked by Pakistan Navy Fleet units and pushed well clear of our waters,"
the press release said.

The Pakistan navy also released footage and photographs of what it was said was the submarine.

India has promptly denied the information.

"This is all blatant lies," Indian navy spokesman D. K. Sharma told Reuters.

Relations between Pakistan and India have been strained for several months, while cross-frontier shelling has intensified leading to deaths of civilians and soldiers stationed along the disputed frontier. Kashmir lies at the heart of the tension. The countries have fought two of their three wars over the region since partition and independence from Britain in 1947.
