Lahore: An India-made anti-tank mine was recovered in Pakistan's Punjab province from Nullah Dek near Kartarpur corridor, an official stated on Wednesday. Muhammad Asim Wahla, the District Civil Defence Officer (Narowal) stated labourers digging out sand from the Nullah Dek found the 14-pound anti-tank mine on Tuesday and informed police about it.

Police immediately reached the spot and called the bomb disposal squad of the civil defence that defused the mine. Nullah Dek enters Pakistan's territory from India in Tehsil Zafarwal, in Narowal district, some 125-km from Lahore. The official said the anti-tank mine was made in India and such mines are sometimes found in the Dek after being pushed by the strong water currents of the Nullah from Indian side.

In another case, India pulled out its Navy from an exercise and deployed a major part of its fleet close to Pakistani territorial waters, including nuclear and conventional submarines post Balakot attacks. Because of the aggressive deployment of the naval assets by India, the Pakistanis were under an impression that New Delhi might use its maritime force to avenge the killing of its 40 CRPF personnel in the suicide bombing by Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM). India was continuously keeping an eye on the movement of the Pakistani military but after Indian Air Force hit the Jaish terrorist factory in Balakot, one of the most advanced Pakistani Agosta-class submarines - PNS Saad - vanished from the Pakistani waters, a senior government source said.
