Indian Military Confirms Deploying NUCLEAR Subs as Tensions With Pakistan Flared
Earlier in the day, the Indian military announced that at around 5:30 AM local time (around 00:00 GMT) Pakistani forces violated a ceasefire by shelling mortars and firing small arms along the line of control between the sides.

Tensions between New Delhi and Islamabad culminated on 27 February, when the two sides' aircraft engaged in an air battle over Kashmir just a day after an Indian airstrike on an alleged jihadist camp on the Pakistani side of the Line of Control. The fight led to the downing of an Indian Air Force MiG-21 and a Pakistani F-16.
