Lahore: Pakistan security forces have arrested a man during a raid in Balochistan province who, according to them, is ‘a serving officer in the Indian Navy and deputed to the Indian intelligence agency Research and Analysis Wing (RAW)’.
A security official told Dawn that the ‘RAW officer’ had been shifted to Islamabad for interrogation, as he was suspected of involvement in various acts of terrorism and other dissident activities in Balochistan.
“The spy had links with separatist elements in Balochistan,” said the security official, adding that the individual was also involved in acts of terrorism and terror attacks in Karachi.
Confirming the arrest, Balochistan Home Minister Mir Sarfaraz Bugti said, “the arrest has proved Indian involvement in Balochistan”, Bugti said.
He added that the man was ‘sponsoring terrorist and subversive activities’ in Balochistan.
Last year, Bugti claimed that RAW and NDS are behind the funding and training of Baloch Republican Army militants. (ANI)
