Islamabad: Baaghi TV on Friday got exclusive documents belonging to Indian intelligence agency Research and Analysis Wing’s (RAW) operative Kulbhushan Yadav who was arrested from Balochistan province on Thursday.
Kulbhushan Yadav, the Indian Naval officer who was working for spy agency RAW, has confessed to Pakistani security agencies that he was hosted in Kabul by Afghanistan’s intelligence agency, National Directorate of Security.
Baaghi TV revealed that the RAW operative hails from Mumbai and possesses a passport registered under the name Hussain Mubarak Patel. His passport number is L9630722 that bears Iranian visa with April 16, 1970 mentioned as the date of birth.
“Kulbhushan Yadav, a commander-ranked officer in Indian Navy was working for RAW and was in contact with Baloch separatists and terrorists fuelling sectarian violence in Pakistan and Balochistan,” Balochistan Interior Minister Mir Sarfraz Bugti told the media. The minister, however, did not disclose the exact location of where the man was arrested.
“The Indian spy was involved in financially supporting terrorists and also confessed to his involvement in Karachi unrest,” Bugti told reporters.
A private TV channel claimed that he was arrested near Pak-Afghan border Chamman area.
The Indian spy joined RAW in 2013 while served the Indian naval intelligence in the past with his number being 41558.
He was earlier appointed at Iran’s port Chabahar. The spy used to live with his family.
Yadav made several confessions admitting links with Balochistan militants including Haji Baloch. He said that Baloch used to provide financial and logistic support to operatives of banned outfits.
Baloch was consolidating Daesh network in Sindh’s Karachi. He said that culprits behind Safoora carnage were in contact with Baloch as well.
Bugti had last year claimed RAW and Afghanistan’s National Directorate of Security (NDS) are funding and training Baloch Republican Army (BRA) militants.
Last year in September, three dossiers containing proof of Indian involvement in terrorist activities in Pakistan were handed over to the United Nations.
Foreign Secretary Aizaz Chaudhry summoned the Indian High Commissioner to the Foreign Office to lodge a formal complaint. The move comes a day after the arrest of an Indian naval intelligence officer in Balochistan.
In the past Pakistan had provided proof of Indian support of terrorism to the Indian authorities in a high-level meeting at Sharm-el-Shaikh, and also provided proof of the same at the United Nations more recently.
The arrest of the suspected RAW officer comes just days before a possible meeting between Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Indian counterpart Narendra Modi at the Nuclear Security Summit in Washington.
According to details, the Indian spy also confessed that a senior officer of Afghan intelligence agency had arranged his meeting with Baloch separatist Dr Allah Nazar.
