Pak caller ‘wanted info’ on guns, LoC laser fence

While families of Kafaitullah Khan, a library assistant in a government school, and BSF head constable Abdul Rasheed are in “shock” over the arrest of their kin, it has come to the fore that Rasheed had received phone calls from Pakistan seeking information on deployment of artillery guns and “laser fence” on the Line of Control in the border districts of Rajouri and Poonch.“Since August, Rasheed had received three to four phone calls on his mobile from callers in Pakistan, believed to be ISI agents. They sought information about the RT guns and laser fence from him but he feigned ignorance,” said a BSF source.While the BSF has ordered an internal probe, since Rasheed has been arrested on charges of espionage, it has not ruled out the possibility of him having spied for Pakistan, sources said.“From the call details of Rasheed’s mobile phone, it has come to the fore that he talked to three to four persons, believed to be ISI agents in Pakistan,” the source said.“Kafaitullah had given Rasheed’s number to his ‘relatives’ in Pakistan, who had been calling up Rasheed since August and in one such conversation he had been asked to furnish this classified information, which Rasheed claimed he never gave,” said sources.Though the BSF didn’t find anything incriminating from his mobile phone and rented accommodation in Rajouri, we cannot rule out the possibility of him transmitting classified info via Whatsapp, Viber and Skype, said a BSF source.
