New Delhi: New Delhi: Weeks after India claimed success in intercepting a Pakistani terror boat off the Porbandar coast in Gujarat, a Deputy Inspector General of the Coast Guard has contradicted claims that the suspected terrorists onboard had blown up the vessel.

Kicking up a controversy, a Deputy Inspector General of the Coast Guard has now claimed that the suspected terrorists onboard the Pakistan terror boat off the Porbandar coast in Gujarat did not blow themselves up.

DIG BK Loshali claimed at a function recently that the Coast Guard had blown up the Pakistan vessel with suspected terrorists onboard on the night of December 31.

According to a report published in Indian Express, DIG Loshali had ordered that the boat be blown up, saying “Blow the boat off…We don’t want to serve them biryani.”

The DIG's statement contradicts government's claim that the suspected terrorists had set the boat on fire and blew themselves up after being challenged by the Coast Guard.

Statements issued then by the Defence Ministry, the Defence Minister and the Coast Guard had claimed that the boat was intercepted 365 miles off Porbandar coast following an hour-long chase by a Coast Guard ship on New Year’s Eve.

Photographs later released by the government showed the boat on fire.

The Coast Guard has said that it will issue a clarification on the matter soon.
