This is the second time Pakistan Navy was able to detect an Indian submarine and prevent it from entering the country's waters since 2016.

The Indian submarine attempts to enter into Pakistani waters comes at a time when the tensions between the neighbouring countries have escalated because of the Pulwama attack, in which 40 Indian soldiers were killed.

Indian media and government officials were quick to assign blame to Pakistan for what they said was supporting the Maulana Masood Azhar-led group, the JeM. Pakistan refuted allegations that its government was linked to the Pulwama attack.

The PAF shot down the Indian jets a day after two Indian aircraft violated the Line of Control and crossed three to four miles into Pakistani territory near Muzaffarabad before PAF jets scrambled and they turned back. They dropped a payload but no damage was incurred, according to the ISPR chief, who took to Twitter to announce the event.
