- ISLAMABAD: As India appeared to dissociate itself from Kul Yadav Bhushan, more details have emerged about the Indian spy arrested from Pakistan.
Bhushan, a serving Indian naval officer, was arrested from Balochistan before being shifted to Islamabad for interrogation.
Balochistan Home Minister Mir Sarfaraz Bugti yesterday revealed the arrest of RAW officer from the province, but he did not reveal the exact location.
Bugti said that Bhushan was in contact with ethnic and sectarian groups fueling violence and terrorism in Balochistan.
“The Indian spy was involved in subversive activities,” he said.
Sources reveal the RAW agent crossed into Balochistan from Iran and was carrying an Iranian passport with the name of Patel Hsusain.
According to the passport, Yadav was born on August 30, 1968 and traveled to Pakistan on May 12, 2014.
“The person arrested in Pakistan as alleged RAW officer has no link with government since his premature retirement from Indian Navy,” a statement by Indian External Affairs Ministry said.
Pakistan lodges protest
Earlier in the day, Pakistan summoned the Indian High Commissioner and through a demarche conveyed Islamabad’s protest and deep concern on the illegal entry into Pakistan by a RAW officer and his involvement in subversive activities in Balochistan and Karachi.-
