By Vicky

Investigations conducted into the telephone exchange racket involving an Inter-Services Intelligence module has surprised officials as the 24 accused in the case belong to the Hindu community. This shows the extent of the ISI's penetration into India, officials say while also adding that money has gone beyond religion.

The ISI, known to sponsor religious fanatics in India has relied on Hindus to run their espionage racket, officials say. The ISI was also known to lure disgruntled Muslims for their activities, but in the present case, it appears as though the modus operandi has changed. The ISI has been tapping people irrespective of their religion and are luring youth with money, officials say.

After the Madhya Pradesh ATS busted this module, it was found that all the 24 youth part of this racket were Hindus. During the probe all of them said that they decided to be part of this module as they were paid good amounts.

The ISI feels that by roping in members of the Hindu community, there would be less suspicion. "This would in turn help the members dodge the Indian agencies. This pattern is not restricted to the espionage module alone," says an official. Investigations being conducted by the NIA in the train derailment case also showed that all the four accused persons arrested in Bihar were Hindus. The prime accused Shamsul Hoda had roped in Hindus so that the suspicion would be less, investigations have also revealed.

"It is a disturbing trend," says and officer with the NIA. In all cases, the accused have said that they were lured with money. There is no ideology here the accused persons said. 'We were promised large sums of money and a good life and hence we bit the bait,' the accused persons had said.
