Pakistan summons Indian HC over arrest of RAW spy  

Pakistan summons Indian HC over arrest of RAW spy   

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s Foreign Office on Friday summoned Indian High Commissioner (HC) to Pakistan and recorded protest over arrest of RAW agent in Balochistan.

Sources said Pakistan officials apprised Indian HC over the arrest of serving Indian Navy commander from Balochistan. Pakistan also sought clarification from the envoy over Indian activities in the province.

Security agencies on Thursday captured an agent of India’s top spy agency from Balochistan.

Balochistan Home Minister Mir Sarfaraz Bugti said that the captured agent was an active Indian serviceman who was active in Balochistan with an aim to destabilise Pakistan. Maps of different installations and sites were also recovered from his possession.

According to sources, the man was arrested by a Pakistani intelligence agency in Balochistan three days ago and he was later shifted to Islamabad for investigation.

The arrested agent of RAW had contacts with separatist groups operating in Balochistan, the sources said, adding that he was a commander in the Indian Navy.

“What is important is that he is a serving RAW agent and he has been captured from Balochistan. We have always maintained that India’s Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) has been involved in creating unrest in Balochistan,” said the provincial minister.

Kul Bushan Yadav is an in-service commander rank officer in the Indian Navy. During initial investigation, he confessed his links with separatist, sectarian and terrorist organisations in Karachi and Balochistan.
