Espionage case: Pakistan HC employee under scanner

The role of a Pakistan High Commision employee here has come under the scanner of Delhi Police in connection with the espionage racket in which an alleged ISI operative and a serving BSF personnel have been arrested.
Kafaitullah Khan alias Master Raja, an alleged handler of the Pakistan Intelligence Operative (PIO), running an espionage racket here backed by the spy outfit, was to meet his counterpart in Pakistan to avail more “resources” for the racket, according to Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) Ravindra Yadav.
“During interrogation, Khan told the police that his counterpart had asked him to get a visa done through their source employed at the Pakistan High Commission here,” Yadav told reporters.
However, the identity of the source at the office of the High Commission is yet to be ascertained, said Yadav.
“Once we get some leads with further interrogation of the accused duo arrested so far, we shall have to approach the Union Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) for their permission to question staff at the High Commission’s office,” he added.
Khan told the police that he was going to meet another PIO handler at Bhopal, who was to inform him about the unidentified source who could easily arrange his visa, said Yadav.
But Khan was intercepted in Delhi on Thursday while he was on his way to attend a religious congregation at Bhopal and also allegedly recruit youths for the espionage racket, he said.
During interrogation, Khan, who is the native of a village in Rajouri district of Jammu and Kashmir, disclosed about his cousin, Abdul Rasheed, who was posted as a head constable in the intelligence wing of Border Security Force there, police said. (AGENCIES)
