Operational treachery: Indian navy’s elusive hunt for Pakistani submarine

Indian media ran an interesting and highly-deceptive story about Pakistan Navy submarine Saad on June 23. India Today, India TV, Times of India, News Nation and Times Now News narrated almost a similar tale, which appeared to have been fed by the officials void of independent reporting and rational analysis. All of these online news agencies claimed that as the events unfolded post Balakot ‘surgical strike’, Pakistan Navy Submarine Saad suddenly ‘vanished’. Linking post-fake across the LoC strike to disappearance of a submarine seems nothing less than areduction ad absurdum.
