In a detailed statement, Director General (DG) ISPR Major General Babar Iftikhar said that the Indian Navy had deployed its submarine against Pakistan with “ulterior motives”.
“However, yet again through continuous vigilance and professionalism, Pakistan Navy has foiled [the] Indian submarine’s attempt of entering into Pakistani waters,” he said.
“During prevailing security environment and ongoing PN Exercise SEASPARK-22, the possibility of Indian unit lurking into Pakistan maritime zone for reconnaissance and gathering information on exercise was anticipated. Therefore, strict monitoring watch and stringent vigilance procedures were enforced. Resultantly, PN anti-submarine warfare unit took the lead and prematurely intercepted and tracked the latest Indian submarine Kalvari on March 1,” DG ISPR added.

Earlier, in March 2019, the PN tracked down an Indian submarine in its maritime zone and prevented it from entering.
