Pakistan seeks Iran’s help to investigate RAW agent’s activities

Posted on 31 March 2016 by PakBee Team - Total hits: 1,044


ISLAMABAD: The Pakistani government has written a letter to Tehran asking for their help in investigating the activities of Kulbhushan Yadav, a serving agent of Indian spy agency RAW arrested from Balochistan.

In the letter written by the Interior Ministry, Pakistan requests the Iranian government to help them investigate other RAW agents operating in the region as well and calls on Tehran to arrest and hand over Indian RAW Sub Inspector Rakesh alias Rizwan, who is known to be a key RAW operative assisting Kulbhushan Yadav.

Sub inspector Rakesh is also working undercover as a businessman dealing in jewelry and is known to be present in Iran, says the letter.

According to a copy of the letter available with Geo News, Pakistan has requested the “proactive support of the brotherly Iranian government” for the immediate arrest and handing over of RAW Sub Inspector Rakesh alias Rizwan for interrogation in Pakistan, verifying the activities of captured RAW officer Kulbhushan Yadav during his stay along with record of visits to Iran, and the records of people that the Indian RAW officers have been interacting with and purpose of their interaction and business

The Pakistani Interior Ministry has also asked the Iranian government to share details of RAW networks on Iranian soil.

Earlier, the Iranian Embassy in response to Yadav’s presence on its soil had said that the two countries had always enjoyed brotherly relations but some elements were bent on sabotaging them. “Iran wants a stable Pakistan. Iran has never felt danger from Pakistan at its border,” a statement from the Iranian Embassy said.

Kulbhushan Yadav was arrested by a intelligence agencies in Balochistan last week and he was later shifted to Islamabad for investigation.

During preliminary investigations, the undercover Indian agent had revealed that his main agenda was to sabotage the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) through propaganda and to create disharmony among the Baloch nationalist political parties.

In a video confession that military spokesman Gen Asim Bajwa played during a press conference, Yadav said: “I am still a serving officer in the Indian Navy and will be due for retirement in 2022.”

“By 2002, I commenced intelligence operations. In 2003, I established a small business in Chabahar in Iran. As I was able to achieve undetected existence and visits to Karachi in 2003 and 2004 and, having done some basic assignments within India for RAW, I was picked up by RAW in 2013,” he added.

His confession came as the Indian government denied he was a serving Navy officer, claiming Yadav had taken premature retirement from service and had nothing to do with the Indian government.

According to documents available with Geo News, Yadev joined the Indian National Defence Academy in 1987. He has a wife and two daughters who live with his father Sudhir in Mumbai.

in the video shown to the media by the ISPR, Yadav can be seen admitting that he is an active officer of the Indian Navy and was working in Pakistan at the behest of RAW.

Yadav confessed that he launched a covert operation against Pakistan from the Iranian port of Chahbahar, for which he used to take instructions from RAW’s joint secretary Anil Gupta.

The detained Indian spy also admitted that RAW had been funding the Baloch separatists for the Balochistan insurgency.

“I am still a serving officer in the Indian Navy and will be due for retirement in 2022,” said Yadav.

“By 2002, I commenced intelligence operations. In 2003, I established a small business in Chabahar in Iran. As I was able to achieve undetected existence and visits to Karachi in 2003 and 2004 and, having done some basic assignments within India for RAW, I was picked up by RAW in 2013,” he added.

The Indian spy said that he had been directing various activities in Karachi and Balochistan at the behest of RAW since 2013. He also confessed of playing a role in deteriorating law and order situation of Karachi.

“These activities have been of anti-national or terrorist nature which resulted in the killing and wounding of Pakistani citizens.”

The capture of the RAW agent is the latest evidence of Islamabad’s claim that the neighbouring country is actively trying to destabilize Pakistan.

Lahore suicide bomber identified

LAHORE: Investigation for the Lahore Attack took a new turn as police said that the identity card found from the location of the blast did not belong to the suicide bomber. Instead, they suspect Salahuddin Khorasani, a member of a banned outfit, carried out the suicide bombing.


Initial investigation of the blast at Gulshan-e-Iqbal Park, which killed 72 on Sunday, had led the police to believe that a man named Muhammad Yousuf from Muzafargarh, whose identity card was found at the crime scene, was the suicide bomber. Law enforcers had arrested three of his brothers and raided a seminary where he was a teacher.

On Tuesday, it was revealed that the bomber was in fact Salahuddin Khurasani from the Jamat ul Ahrar group, a breakaway faction of the banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) terrorist organisation.

With the help of eye witnesses, police sketched a picture of the suicide bomber. Salahuddin Khurasani has an olive complexion, a large nose, a short beard, and thick hair. He is beleived to be between the age of 20 to 25 years.

The paramilitary has launched a crackdown against terrorists in Punjab after the deadly bombing, . According to a press statement by DG ISPR Lt-Gen Asim Saleem Bajwa, intelligence agencies with Army and Rangers carried out five operations in Lahore, Faisalabad, and Multan since the attack in the busy Gulshan-e-Iqbal Park in the Punjab capital.

Sources confirmed that the anti-terror crackdown was launched on the orders of the Army chief and will commence with operations in southern Punjab, long believed to be a hotbed of religious extremism and militancy.

The sources added that troops from the Army and Rangers will take part in the crackdown, and that the military’s Corps Commander in Lahore will be regularly apprised of the progress of the operation.

In an address to the nation late on Monday, the Prime Minister vowed to bring justice for the victims of the blast. “Terrorists should know failure is their fate,” he said.
