Pakistan's trade official was an undercover ISI agent in India
New Delhi, Nov 2: Syed Furukh Habib is a top ISI officer and chief of intelligence operations in India. A few years back he was a commercial counsellor in the Pakistan High Commission in India.
He was in charge of India-Pakistan trade relations. He was however outed by Mehmood Akthar, the staffer in the Pakistan mission who was detained and then released after being caught for spying.
This has raised a big question on the manner in which Pakistan has been operating. OneIndia in a series of articles had reported how terror modules and spy rings were being run out of Pakistan's High Commissions.
Under the garb of trade:
Akthar names Habib as the module boss. He says that Habib was in charge of the operations in India. Habib was posted in India as a commercial counsellor.
This was just a cover say Intelligence Bureau officials. He was sent specifically to oversee this operation.
Going by this confession made by Akthar which has been caught on camera, it becomes clear that not all in the Pakistan High Commission have clean hands. There are several officials in the mission who are ISI agents or officers. They have expertise in spying and hence have been sent to India, the IB officer also says.
India will raise this issue strongly with Pakistan. Moreover a through back ground check of all those being posted in the Pakistan High Commission will be undertaken in future to ensure that such incidents do not occur, officials also add.
