Kulbhushan trained separatists to target Pakistani ports; 13 more cohorts arrested
Quetta—Interrogation of the arrested Indian intelligence operative Kulbhushan Yadav has revealed he had been imparting Naval fighting training to Baloch separatists in an attempt to target Pakistani ports, a security official who declined to be named said on Sunday.
The Indian Foreign Ministry earlier confirmed the arrested man was a former Indian Navy officer, but the Pakistani government claimed to have recovered travel documents and multiple fake identities of Yadav, establishing him as an Indian spy who entered into Balochistan through Iran — holding a valid Iranian visa.
Yadav who was shifted to Islamabad for interrogation, has revealed that he had purchased boats at the Iranian port in Chabahar in order to target Karachi and Gwadar ports in a terrorist plot, the official said, adding that the ‘RAW agent’ is believed to be expert at Naval fighting techniques.
Yadav was also transporting ‘anti-state elements’ from Pakistan to New Delhi for training by RAW, he said.
Following recent revelations by the ‘Indian spy’, security has been tightened across Balochistan, especially at the shared borders with Iran and Afghanistan, and more arrests are expected, he said.
The arrest of the ‘RAW agent’ comes just days before a possible meeting between Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Indian counterpart Narendra Modi at the Nuclear Security Summit in Washington.
Meanwhile, the intelligence agencies have geared up the operation against the Research and Analysis Wings culprits across the country and arrested 13 more accomplices of Kulbhushan Yadav, Indian intelligence agency agent.
Sources said that the nabbed suspects are involved in terrorism, sectarian clashes and target killings, therefore, their arrest is being kept confidential.
During investigation from the suspects it has been revealed that as many as 500 Indian trained terrorists posing as Muslims have entered Pakistan and are indulged in promoting terrorism, religious conflicts, arousing anti-army sentiments and other anti-national activities. Sources report that in coming days more significant arrests are likely to be made. On the other hand, the team investigating Kulbhushan Yadav has presented its report.
According to the report, the RAW agent has confessed of government deployment in the country. Moreover, the report also states that Yadav was also involved in funding for terrorism, separatism and sectarianism. Besides this his accomplices are still present in Karachi and Balochistan.
