At an event in New Delhi, India’s Naval Chief Sunil Lamba has said that Pakistan based terror attacks are planned via high seas. Naval Chief Sunil Lanba speaking at an event in Delhi said,
“We also have reports of terrorists being trained to carry out attacks with varying modus operandi including through the medium of the sea.”
Countering Pakistan for its support to terror, Lanba said, “India faces a far more serious version of terrorism called, ‘State – Sponsored Terrorism’. You have all witnessed the horrific scale of the extremist attack in Jammu and Kashmir just 3 weeks ago. This violence was perpetrated by extremists aided and abetted by a state which seeks to destabilise India.”
Lanba said that the Indo-pacific region has witnessed multiple forms of terrorism in recent years and few countries in this part of the world have been spared by this cause.
“Global nature which terrorism has acquired in recent times has further enhanced the scope of this threat.”
The development comes even as India saw the worst terror attack on its security personnel on 14th February in Pulwama in which it lost more than 40 CRPF personnel. Pakistan based group Jaish e mohammad (JeM) has claimed responsibility for the attack.
