Two persons including a BSF personnel were reportedly detained over their alleged links with Pakistan’s intelligence agency.
Kafaitullah Khan alias Master Raja (44) of JK’s Rajouri district and Border Security Force (BSF) head constable Abdul Rasheed were detained from Jammu on November 26.
While Khan is termed an ISI handler, Rasheed is said to be his key source. “They were running an espionage racket which was supported by Pakistan’s ISI,” reports quoting Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime Branch) Ravindra Yadav said. “Both were arrested under various provisions of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and the Official Secrets Act.”
Yadav said some secret documents related to “national security” were also seized from their possession. “Khan has contacts in India’s security agencies through which he was procuring secret information detrimental to the security of the country.”
Khan, a library assistant at a higher secondary school in Rajouri’s Manjakote, had visited Pakistan in 2013 where he came in contact with an ISI agent and in lieu of monetary benefit, Yadav said, he agreed to provide secret information about the defence forces.
“He later cultivated his sources in the army and the BSF and they started passing on information to Pakistani intelligence operatives. The information was passed through email, WhatsApp and Viber,” Yadav said.
