Kolkata: The Chinese Navy has been found to have increased its presence in the Indian Ocean for snooping on India.
The revelation comes close on the heels of reports of a PLA research vessel forced by the Indian Navy to return from the exclusive economic zone off Andaman & Nicobar Islands recently. “The Chinese Navy is all over the Indian Ocean. Right now the Chinese Navy and Pakistan Navy are doing an exercise. It is international water after 12 nautical miles. Everybody can come. You cannot stop it. But as long as we know they are present there, we track them,” naval officer Incharge (West Bengal) Commodore Suprobho K. De said at INS Netaji Subhas on Tuesday during Navy Day celebrations.
