Pakistani forces have been constant allegations on the Indian side, as two days back, its army claimed to have killed 11 Indian soldiers on the borders.

Captain DK Sharma, navy spokesperson here in navy headquarters in national capital said, “Indian Navy categorically denies the statement of Pakistani Navy as blatant lies,” by adding that the Indian Navy did not have any under water movement in the said waters as claimed by the Pakistani Navy”

Earlier in the day, Pakistan has issued a statement claiming that Pakistani Navy had claimed it has proved its vigilance and operational competence by detecting and blocking an Indian submarine from entering Pakistani waters.

"The unsuspecting submarine was detected and localised south of Pakistani coast on November 16. Thereafter, despite submarine's desperate efforts to escape detection, it was continuously tracked by Pakistan Navy Fleet units and pushed well clear of our waters," the statement had said.

On Tuesday, Pakistan Navy said that China Pakistan Economic Corridor's first cargo containers were safely escorted in the Arabian Sea towards their destination to the Middle East and African countries.

Pakistan Army's powerful Army Chief Gen Raheel Sharif had on Wednesday claimed that his men killed 11 Indian soldiers in cross border firing across the Line of Control (LoC). This statement too was denied by the Indian Army.

Moreover, the Pakistani army has been repeatedly making allegations of civilian killings by Indian force’s retaliatory fire at the Line of Control. In contrary, Pakistan army has violated ceasefire violations by 370 times this year so far at the Line of Control and the international border, which several civilians villages were targeted alongwith Indian army’s posts.
