Pakistani terror group Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM), too, has been training its members to carry out underwater attacks on Indian installations. The JeM terrorists have been trying to enter the country through the sea route to carry out their nefarious designs but Chief of Naval Staff Admiral Karambir Singh has said that his forces are prepared for any eventuality and will not let Pakistan to execute its dastardly plans.

"We have received intelligence that the underwater wing of Jaish-e-Mohammad is being trained for attacks. We are keeping track of it and can give an assurance that we are fully alert to foil any such design," Admiral Singh had said in Pune on Monday.

JeM was responsible for the suicide terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama on February 14, 2019, on a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) convoy in which at least 40 security personnel were martyred. The Indian Air Force had retaliated to the attack on February 26 by bombing JeM terror camps in Pakistan's Balakot.

Pakistan has been trying to create more disturbance in India ever since the abrogation of Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir which ended the former state's special status.
