Pak media branded the eight diplomats as ‘Indian spies and under-cover operatives’
According to Dawn, the alleged Indian intelligence personnel, whose cover was blown in the media leak, are Rajesh Kumar Agnihotri (posted as commercial counsellor); Balbir Singh (posted as first secretary, press and culture); Anurag Singh (working as first secretary, commercial), Amardeep Singh Bhatti (visa attache); Dharmedra, Vijay Kumar Verma and Madhavan Nanda Kumar (visa assistants); and Jayabalan Senthil (assistant, personnel welfare office). The media leak claimed that the officials were working either for RAW or for the Indian Intelligence Bureau.
Pakistan has a couple of days back decided to bring back six of its diplomats after New Delhi’s objection who were said to involved in acts of espionage.
No Pakistani foreign Office official was available to confirm the media leak of eight Indian diplomats — which began with the electronic media — or give its details.
The revealed Indian agents, according to the information leaked to the media, were, however, found to be involved in subversive activities, including attempts to disrupt the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) and create fear and chaos in the country. They are also alleged to be building a network of informants within Pakistan and fabricating evidence for tarnishing the country’s image abroad.
