New Delhi, Mar 5: Navy chief Admiral Sunil Lanba on Tuesday warned about militants being trained to carry out attacks even via sea route.
Addressing the Indo-Pacific Regional Dialogue, Admiral Lanba without taking names hit out at Pakistan for the Pulwama attack that left forty CRPF troopers dead.
“India, however, faces a far more serious version of militancy — state-sponsored militancy. You have all witnessed the horrific scale of the extremist attack in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir just three weeks ago,” he said.
“This violence was perpetrated by extremists aided and abetted by a state, which seeks to destabilise India,” said Lanba.
He said they also have reports of militants being trained to carry out attacks with varying modus operandi, including through the medium of the sea.
“The Indian security establishment is continuously working to address this menace. It is imperative that the global community acts to contain and eliminate terrorism, in all its forms,” he added.
