Another Conspiracy Hatched: Serving Indian Naval Personnel Held For Spying in Pakistan
Yet another time Pakistani security agencies have captured an agent of India’s top spy agency RAW from the volatile southwestern province of Balochistan. In a media statement, Home Minister Balochistan, Mir Sarfaraz Bugti said that the agent who was captured in an intelligence guided raid in Chaman area (near Pak-Afghan border) was an Indian Naval serviceman who was active in the province with an aim to destabilize Pakistan. Maps of different installations and sites and Afghan and Pakistani SIMs were also recovered from his possession.
Sources say that the arrested agent, Kul Bushan Yadav, is an in-service commander rank officer of the Indian Navy and was deputed to work for India’s external intelligence agency RAW. They claim that Bhushan had contacts with separatist groups and Baloch liberation parties operating in province. He was actually working as agent and trainer of Baloch insurgents.
During initial investigation, he confessed his links with separatist, sectarian and terrorist organizations in Karachi and Balochistan.
Sarfraz Bugti said that the arrest confirms the involvement of RAW in Balochistan as the man was found guilty of sponsoring subversive activities in the already-troubled province and arranging for funding and training of the Baloch Republican Army. Minister also claimed that India is spreading unrest in Balochistan through RAW agents with help of Afghan National Directorate of Security (NDS).
Pakistan’s premier intelligence agency, ISI, claimed they have ‘blown a major RAW ring through this catch’. After initial interrogation by agency’s Balochistan office, the arrested man was moved to Islamabad for detailed investigation, they said. As per them and other informed official sources, the RAW officer told the interrogators that he has been operating with the assistance of Afghanistan’s spy agency, NDS. As per initial investigation, the RAW officer had came from Iran to Afghanistan and had been operating from Kandhar province. He used to enter into Balochistan on regular basis as he was running a network of agents in that volatile province.
Interestingly, Yadav, during preliminary investigations confessed that his main agenda was to sabotage the CPEC through propaganda and create disharmony among the Baloch nationalist political parties. He crossed the Pak-Afghan border 12 times. The initial investigation also reveals that during his latest stay, he contacted various Baloch nationalist leaders and insurgents, including Dr Allah Nazar Baloch, to task them to undermine the CPEC project. He also distributed millions of rupees among the trouble-makers and insurgents of Balochistan.
Pakistan has always been pointi8ng out Indian hand in areas bordering Afghanistan and Iran. She also raised objections on the presence of Indian consulates near the Pak-Afghan border which are constantly being used by India to export turbulence in Pakistan through the porous Pak-Afghan border. Out of the total more than 15 Indian consulates in Afghanistan, most are located in areas adjacent to Pakistan border and Yadev was stationed at one of them in Kandahar.
On the same note, former US Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel has also indicated that India is using Afghan soil to finance the problems for Pakistan. According to the video still present on internet Hagel, during an address on Afghanistan at Oklahoma’s Cameron University in 2011, had said, “India for some time has always used Afghanistan as a second front, and India has over the years financed problems for Pakistan on that side of the border”. “And you can carry that into many dimensions, the point being the tense, fragmented relationship between Pakistan and Afghanistan has been there for many, many years,” he added.
Ironically entire U.S. policy is a provision to these Indian incursions in Pakistan, as Webster G. Tarpley revealed in an interview, “The entire thrust of U.S. policy in the region (Afghanistan and Pakistan) is to provoke a civil war in Pakistan, to breakup Pakistan and prevent Pakistan in becoming energy corridor between Iran and China. I think this claim is actually quite plausible.”
The Western media habitually insists on the bizarre assumptions that Pakistan has secret ties with jihadis to launch attacks on India, but it has less often revealed that India is persistently involved in a proxy war against Pakistan.
For clues as to what Indian spooks are up to now, let’s talk about the viral video of a 2013 speech by Ajit Doval delivered before he was appointed as National Security Advisor (NSA) by Indian Prime Minister Modi. Doval while addressing to the crowd of SASTRA University said, “How do we tackle Pakistan? .. You make it difficult for them (Pakistan) to manage their internal security… Pakistan’s vulnerability is many many times higher than India’s….Taliban have beheaded 23 of their (Pakistani) soldiers…funding can be countered by giving more funds…more than one-and-a-half times the funding they have available and they’ll be yours..the Taliban are mercenaries…go for more of a covert thing” (http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x2cq6ov_how-to-tackle-pakistan-by-ajit-doval-india-national-security-adviser-2014_webcam)
The arrest of Indian spy comes at a crucial time. Pakistani officials are set to travel to India to discuss the Pathankot incident, which India has blamed on non-state actors based in Pakistan – the Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM). Islamabad has assured New Delhi of full cooperation in this case. However, the investigations made so far on the leads provided by India have not yielded any result, security sources said. “We searched their (JeM leaders’) homes, seminaries, hideouts and also examined their call records for past three months and found nothing dubious,” a security official with links to the investigating team told a news agency. What we have to see now is what India has to offer Pakistan in this evident case of conspiracy against Pakistan.
