ISLAMABAD (Web Desk) – Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said on Friday Pakistan would seek Iran’s help to hold a thorough investigation into the arrest of a RAW agent.
He said in a statement, the arrest proved that foreign hand was involved in sabotaging peace in the Balochistan province, Geo News reported.
The interior minister categorically said that no country should consider Pakistan’s efforts for regional peace and friendship as its weakness.
He said that efforts of the Pakistani secret agencies were commendable and their hard work has led to dismantling of network of the country’s enemy.
Pakistan had summoned the Indian ambassador earlier today to protest against the illegal entry of the Indian spy before India’s foreign ministry sought consular access to its undercover agent.
“The Indian High Commissioner was summoned by the Foreign Secretary today (Friday) and through a demarche conveyed our protest and deep concern on the illegal entry into Pakistan by a RAW officer and his involvement in subversive activities in Balochistan and Karachi,” an FO spokesperson said.
Pakistan is most probably will also raise this issue in Foreign Secretary-level meeting with India.
Kulbhushan Yadav, a serving officer in the Indian Navy and deputed to RAW from Balochistan, was arrested on charges of being involved in “subversive activities”.gg2

The minister did not reveal the location of Bhushan’s arrest. However, sources said that Bhushan was arrested from Chaman area of Balochistan, which is close to the Afghanistan border.
During preliminary investigations, the undercover Indian agent revealed that his main agenda was to sabotage the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) through propaganda and to create disharmony among the Baloch nationalist political parties.
