New Delhi: India on Thursday admitted that the man arrested in Pakistan has served with the navy but denied that he is an agent of RAW and said the man has no relation with the government.
“The individual has no link with Government since his premature retirement from Indian Navy,” said the Foreign Ministry in a statement.
In Islamabad, the Indian envoy Gautam Bambawale was summoned by the Pakistani government which alleged that the arrested Indian, identified as Kul Yadav Bhushan, had instigated terror attacks in Karachi and unrest in Balochistan.
Kul Yadav Bhushan was arrested yesterday in a raid in Balochistan, said Pakistani media, claiming that he “distributed millions of rupees among the nationalists and insurgents in the troubled province” which borders Afghanistan and Iran and has been fighting for decades for independence.
Pakistani sites reported that the arrest will be raised by Nawaz Sharif during his meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Washington later this month when both leaders travel there for a summit on nuclear security.
