Pak Terror Boat Explosion: Coast Guard DIG makes U Turn after Claim

New Delhi, Feb 18: Coast Guard DIG BK Loshali, who came under fire for the claim that he had ordered to blow up the suspicious Pakistani terror boat that was approaching towards India in the Arabian sea, made a U turn on the reports.

Earlier in the day, DIG BK Loshali revealed that he had ordered to blow up the Pakistan boat on the night of December 31 and 1. He had asked his team members to destroy the Pakistan boat as they do not want to serve them biryani in India.

After the report created a buzz in media and political corridors for its contradiction to the governments claim, he denied it in a written statement.

He clarified that he did not lead the operation conducted by the coast guard officials on that night. He said that the crew on the boat set that on fire. That was not sunk by the Indian coast guard.

With this statements and revelations, one thing is pretty clear that something is hidden in the episode.

The opposition parties had pulled up the government after it was aired on the media that Indian coast guard foiled a 26/11 like attack in India chasing a Pakistani boat off Porbandar in Gujarat on Dec 31 night. The boat reportedly laden with explosives was exploded and sunk into the sea after the crew of the boat set itself on fire when the operation team warned them to stop.
