India media including India Times carried four-liner news that Pakistan submarine on Thursday fired at four Indian boats carrying 25 fishermen on port of Jakhau village in Gujarat. According to laconic details, one fisherman was injured in the firing and 24 others were arrested by Pakistan navy. There was earlier report last month that Pakistani navy had fired at an Indian boat off the Gujarat coast, killing one fisherman.

The report stated that Pakistan seized 837 Indian boats and put 257 Indian fishermen in jails. According to the Press Trust of India, an Indian delegation is set to visit Pakistan in order to inspect 22 seized Indian boats.
India has he habit of staging fishing boat dramas that too at Gujarat, but this time it never occurred to the Indian propagandists that Submarine is not meant for attacking fishing boats but naval ships, submarines and high-value targets.
According to naval experts, torpedo and missiles are an expensive affair, and secondly submarine cannot detect fishing boat on the surface. While others are of the opinion that periscope is the eye of the submarine, which was invented and developed solely for the purpose of providing a means to view the surface without fear of detection by surface craft.
While it is primarily simple in principle, actually it is a complicated piece of apparatus. Almost all the navies of the world have similar instruments with only minor variations. However, it can detect the fishing vessel or fishing boat if engines are on and not quiet.
Anyhow, a nuclear-powered US submarine surfacing during routine operations in 2001off the coast of Hawaii yad struck and sank a Japanese fishing vessel carrying 35 people, including 13 students from a fisheries high school.
Coast Guard teams rescued 26 of those who had been aboard the 150-foot fishing boat, identified as the Ehime Maru.
Having that said, India seems to be running short of the scripts, which is why it is using boat dramas in conducting its false flag operations to discredit Pakistan.
The story on 18th September 2015 made public was titled "one Killed as unmarked ship fires at Indian fishing boat Off Gujarat Coast." However, the report had many holes, as according to the report "it was not clear whether the ship that attacked the boat was from Pakistan. The story continued: "The fishing boat, named Prem Raj, had set sail from the port of Okha in Gujarat with five people on board on September 8.
The Indian coastguard rushed two ships, the Vijit and the Meeraben to investigate the incident and launch a search operation."
In the third week of January 2015, Indian drama of suspicious terror boat had been exposed. Since then Indian government is mute over the issue as if nothing had happened. Immediately after the incident, the Indian Coast Guard had said that it intercepted a suspicious fishing boat 365 km off the Porbandar coast on December 31 night. "When the Coast Guard ship fired warning shots and asked the crew to stop and identify, the crew set the boat afire", said the coastguard. India's defence ministry sources recounted the entire episode as narrated by the coast guard with the addition that "the National Technical Research Organisation (NTRO) had intercepted a conversation from Karachi on transferring vital equipment to the western coast of India. But that conversation was never produced in the court or any other forum, which meant it was a frame up.
Ajai Shukla, a noted defence analyst and former army officer had said: "Who knows the story behind the story. We may never discover the truth. But as it stands, the coastguard's story of the high seas encounter doesn't stand scrutiny.
This is strictly my military opinion." Another retired senior intelligence official said: "If it really was a boat carrying terrorists for a 26/11 kind of an attack, its crew would have attacked the Coast Guard ship first, and blown up the boat only after harming the Coast Guard." The question is also being asked as to why the Coast Guard chased the boat when it was on the fringe of India's exclusive economic zone (EEZ), which extends up to 200 nautical miles or 370 km. The aim of this stereotype Indian orchestrated event was to create an environment against Pakistan prior to US President Barrack Obama's visit to India.
