It has not been long since an Indian submarine was found in Pakistani waters. However, Pakistan navy responded quickly and chased it away from the Pakistani waters.
Similarly, an Indian drone was also shot down after it entered Pakistan aerial space. It is also pertinent to mention here that a serving Indian army RAW officer kulbhushan yadav was also arrested from Pakistan. Indian Government went on to admit that kulbhushan yadav was indeed their army personnel.
Keeping in view all these threats Pakistan army has taken special steps to safeguard CPEC routes along with Gwadar Port. Aerial monitoring is also being undertaken along with regular patrolling of the CPEC routes.
