ISLAMABAD – The Indian agent, arrested from Balochistan, has confessed to have spent millions of dollars among separatists in Balochistan to fight Pakistan’s security forces.
The Indian agent identified as Kulbhushan Yadav, who was arrested from Balochistan, told investigators that his terror financing aimed at carrying subversive activities in Karachi and Balochistan.
The security forces have also busted a terrorist network on the disclosures made by the Indian agent, security sources told Daily Pakistan.
The Indian Foreign Office on Friday, while admitting the alleged RAW agent arrested by Pakistani security forces to be its citizen, claimed that the suspect had already taken early retirement from the Indian Navy.
A statement issued by New Delhi denied having any links with the arrested individual and said “he was no longer a serving official of the Indian armed forces”.
“The arrested man is a former Indian Navy officer,” the Indian Foreign Office was quoted as saying.
Security forces in Balochistan had on Thursday claimed the arrest of a man who was ‘a serving officer in the Indian Navy and deputed to the Indian intelligence agency Research and Analysis Wing (RAW).’
The Pakistan government, on the other hand, claim to have recovered the travel documents and multiple fake identities of the arrested ‘spy’, establishing him as an Indian spy who entered into Balochistan through Iran – having a valid Iranian visa.
Pakistan on Friday summoned Indian High Commissioner Gautam Bambawale to lodge a strong protest over ‘India’s spying activities’ across the borders.
The RAW officer had been shifted to Islamabad for interrogation, as he was suspected of involvement in various acts of terrorism and other subversive activities in the province.
