"I would like to say that there was no Indian submarine deployed in their area as the Navy is claiming it to be. As far as repelling the submarine of any nation goes, it is not an easy task and the claim made by the Pakistani Navy is totally bogus. Due to prevailing security scenario, the navy has reviewed deployment philosophy to proactively deter any menace," he said.

"We deploy our submarines where we need operational necessity and the need for them to be. We will continue to deploy our submarines," he added.

On last Thursday, naval chief Admiral Muhammad Zakaullah had termed as "unusual" an alleged effort by an Indian submarine to enter into its territorial waters and warned of retaliation if such an effort was made again.

"If does something like this again, the Navy will respond to protect our sovereignty," he said, speaking on the sidelines of the 9th International Defence Exhibition.
