Islamabad: Islamabad has sought from Tehran details about the stay and activities in Iran of an alleged Indian spy arrested in Pakistan, the state radio said yesterday.
The man, identified as Kulbhushan Yadav, was caught in Pakistan’s southwestern Balochistan province where he had entered, according Pakistani authorities, from Iran.
On Tuesday, the government showed to media a ‘video confession’ of the alleged officer of Indian intelligence RAW (Research and Analysis Wing) about his subversive activities in Pakistan.
Quoting reliable sources, Radio Pakistan said Islamabad has also asked Tehran to arrest and hand over Yadav’s accomplice named Rakesh, alias Rizwan.
According to the state radio, Pakistan has told Iran that its cooperation on the issue “will not only further strengthen brotherly relations between the two countries, but also reduce terrorist incidents and unrest in the region”.
