Will continue deploying our submarines as needed: Navy chief

IANS  |  New Delhi 

Refuting Pakistan's claims that it detected and chased out an Indian submarine from its waters, Indian Navy chief Admiral Sunil Lanba on Friday said that deploys its submarines as per operational necessity.

He also said that the presence of the Chinese Navy at Gwadar port in Balochistan, Pakistan, is being monitored and that is ready to tackle it.

"Repelling submarine of any nation is not easy task. Claim made by Navy is totally bogus," the Chief of Naval Staff told media here during an annual briefing on Navy Day.

"We deploy our submarines where as per the operational necessity and where we need. We will continue to deploy our submarines," Lanba said.

The Navy on November 18 claimed that it detected and chased away an Indian submarine which was trying to station in its waters.

Speaking on the presence of the Chinese Navy's ships and submarines at Gwadar port of Balochistan in Pakistan, the Navy Chief said that is keeping a close eye on them.

"We have capability and assets to take on any force which is deployed, and if and when this happens, we have plans in place to tackle it," he said.

Saying that the Chinese Navy has not touched the Indian waters, Adm Lanba added that launches surveillance missions to keep an eye on the People's Liberation Army's Navy ships and submarines in the Indian Ocean region.

Lanba said that the Navy is finalising design of the second indigenous aircraft carrier and will soon seek the government's approval. He added that 40 ships, four submarines and 12 aircraft are deployed far and near to protect the Indian waters.
