New Delhi : Indian nuclear submarine INS Arihant has successfully completed its first deterrence patrol, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Monday while stressing that the underwater war boat is a "fitting response" to those who indulge in "nuclear blackmail".

It will be recalled that Arihant was launched on 26 July 2009, the anniversary of Vijay Diwas(Kargil War Victory Day) by then Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh. After fitting out and extensive sea trials, on 23 February 2016, she was confirmed as ready for operations, and was commissioned in August 2016.  
Dhanteras, the prime minister Modi said, has become even more special.

"India's pride, nuclear submarine INS Arihant successfully completed its first deterrence patrol! I congratulate all those involved, especially the crew of INS Arihant for this accomplishment, which will always be remembered in our history," Modi said in a series of tweets.

The prime minister said that INS Arihant will help in protecting the country from external threats and contribute to the atmosphere of peace in the region.
