ISLAMABAD: In a joint press conference by Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) head Lt Gen Asim Bajwa and Federal Information Minister Pervez Rashid on Tuesday, a video of arrested Indian Navy officer Kulbushan Jadhav was aired in which he confessed to involvement in terror activities in Balochistan and Karachi.

Terming the Indian spy's arrest a 'big achievement', Bajwa said Jadhav was directly handled by the RAW chief, the Indian National Security Adviser and the RAW joint secretary.

"His goal was to disrupt development of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), with Gwadar port as a special target," Bajwa said, adding, "This is nothing short of state-sponsored terrorism... There can be no clearer evidence of Indian interference in Pakistan."

"If an intelligence or an armed forces officer of this rank is arrested in another country, it is a big achievement," Bajwa said, before going on to play a video of Jadhav confessing to Indian intelligence agency Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) involvement in Balochistan separatist activities in Pakistan.


What we know so far about Kulbushan Jadhav:

  • He is the contact man for Anil Kumar Gupta, the joint secretary of RAW, and his other operatives in Pakistan
  • His was tasked to disrupt development of CPEC, with Gwadar port as a special target
  • Jadhav is still a serving officer in the Indian Navy and will be due for retirement in 2022
  • He started carrying out intelligence based operations in 2002 and in 2003 established a small business in Chabahar, Iran
  • Jadhav directed various activities in Karachi and Balochistan at the behest of RAW
  • He was involved in activities of 'anti-national or terrorist nature'

In the video, Jadhav, who hails from Mumbai, said he had joined India's National Defence Academy in 1987 before going on to join the Indian Navy in 1991.

"I am still a serving officer in the Indian Navy and will be due for retirement in 2022," he said.

"By 2002, I commenced intelligence operations. In 2003, I established a small business in Chabahar in Iran. As I was able to achieve undetected existence and visits to Karachi in 2003 and 2004 and, having done some basic assignments within India for RAW, I was picked up by RAW in 2013 end," Jadhav said.

Since then, he said he has been directing various activities in Karachi and Balochistan "at the behest of RAW", adding that he had played a role in the deteriorating law and order situation in Karachi.

"I am basically the man for Mr Anil Kumar Gupta who is the joint secretary of RAW and his contacts in Pakistan," he said, "especially in the Baloch student organisation". His purpose was to meet Baloch insurgents and carry out "activities with their collaboration", he explained.

"These activities have been of anti-national or terrorist nature," he said, as they resulted in the "killing or maiming of Pakistani citizens".

Jadhav's arrest

Law enforcement agencies announced the arrest of Jadhav during an intelligence-based raid in Balochistan's Chaman last week.

The Indian Foreign Ministry earlier confirmed the arrested man was a former Indian Navy officer, but the Pakistani government claimed to have recovered travel documents and multiple fake identities of Jadhav, establishing him as an Indian spy who entered into Balochistan through Iran — holding a valid Iranian visa.

Jadhav was shifted to Islamabad for interrogation, during which an unnamed official said the spy revealed that he had purchased boats at the Iranian port in Chabahar in order to target Karachi and Gwadar ports in a terrorist plot. The official had said the 'RAW agent' is believed to be expert at Naval fighting techniques.

After Jadhav's arrest, Pakistan summoned Indian High Commissioner Gautam Bambawale to lodge a strong protest over 'India's spying activities' in Balochistan and Karachi.

Following revelations by the Indian spy, security was tightened across Balochistan, especially at the shared borders with Iran and Afghanistan.

Jadhav's arrest occurred just days before a possible meeting between the Indian and Pakistani foreign secretaries at the Nuclear Security Summit in Washington, whose meeting to restart the Comprehensive Bilateral Dialogue (CBD) in January was derailed by the Pathankot attack.

At the beginning of March, foreign affairs adviser Sartaj Aziz had said that foreign-secretary levels talks would resume after the probe team's visit. The Pathankot Joint Investigation Team left for New Delhi on Sunday (today) and is expected to investigate the attack over the next week.

Pakistan and India had agreed to resume peace talks under the newly-coined phrase of CBD during Swaraj’s visit to Islamabad for the Heart of Asia Conference last year.

The dialogue was to take on matters related to peace and security, Jammu and Kashmir, Siachen, Sir Creek, Wullar Barrage, Tulbul Navigation Project, economic and commercial cooperation, counter-terrorism, narcotics control and humanitarian issues, people to people exchanges and religious tourism.

Seems like it always takes a tragedy before an operation is started. Whatever happened with karachi operation? What happened to interior Sindh operation? And now Punjab. These are protocols and passive steps. All elites and influential always manages to flee the country. This will keep on happening until or unless root cause is addressed. Killing/arresting militants will not solve anything. There is no shortage of recruits.

This Govt has broken all records of corruption, nepotism, selfishness, borrowing loans, sorry state of state institutions, falling standards of education, law and order situation and many many more things where this Govt is a complete failure.

PPP last Govt had all kind of evils in it and they did not leave any chance to destroy our Great country but when i compare both Govt I realized one thing PPP did as we know about them but PML-N did exactly opposite to what they preach. They have lost their reputation in the eyes of this nation and it will reflect in the next election.

All are being very re-active. They should be proactive. Catch these people before they do the damage. And get to the root of this problem. Find out why people want to blow themselves up and address the root cause of the problem so the terrorists find it hard to recruit people willing to blow themselves up. After all why would a happy and contented person want to blow himself up.

The point is that we keep on capturing such RAW spies from time to time, but we never take up such issues actively with India and World powers or UN.. Had they caught our spy in India, they would have created a mountain out of it and raised it at every forum, and all their political leaders would have resorted to aggressive rhetoric.. So, why are we acting docile and impotent..?? We should also react in a similar aggressive manner..

I believe intelligence agencies are funded by the governments to spy in other countries. Once a spy is arrested, he is interrogated and debriefed by intelligence agencies and then trade-in with their own arrested spies. All this is done under cover. If it is a high profile arrest, other powerful countries (Like USA, China, India in this case) are taken on board through diplomatic channels. I think this is not going to bring peace and stability in the region.

Faiza Salman

Given that this spy is cooperative, Pak intelligence agencies should round up all the other spies operating in Pakistan and get rid of them once and for all. That should ensure peace in Baloch and everywhere else.

Spying, survelliance is all ok. All countries do it. Even Saudi and UAE slhave spies in each other countries. UK and US and Israel have spies in each other country. But harming even one single civilian is not acceptable. Even one drop of blood of even one innocent civilian is sacred. If this guy is a terrorist treat him like a terrorist. If he is a spy treat him like a spy. Be honest and truthful. God is watching.

If Pakistan is so sure about Yadav being the spy, why has he not been given consular access yet? This is in complete disregard to international conventions.

Mar 29, 2016 10:06pm

I saw the video online. Since the video was edited the audio and the video was not always in sync. He was speaking fluently but at the point when he was talking about his assignments and his retirement years ,his eyes were staring at something in front and was talking slowly. If someone is thinking they will naturally close the eyes, but he was staring and trying to read something and was going out of words. So looks like he was reading through some manuscripts. Not the usual way to a talk.

Imad Qureshi
Mar 29, 2016 10:12pm

@Rohit Singh of course they would. Although at the same time they have asked for counselor access. No one would own him but that doesn't mean they are not sponsoring terrorism in Pakistan and this is unprecedented evidence of their sponsoring of terrorism in Pakistan.

Imad Qureshi
Mar 29, 2016 10:14pm

@Indian it was not his real passport. He had Muslim name on his passport. He was of course crossing border using fake passport from Pakistan/Iran border.

Even after this tangible proof, the Indian government will never admit its involvement in the insurgency in Balochistan because it does not have the guts and the grit to call a spade a spade.

Bomb blast are comparatively very lower. KARACHI is much more peaceful. China Pak economic corridor started during PML N time. I think we should appreciate goods steps taken by government.

Jamshed
Mar 30, 2016 01:34am

Pakistan has been a fertile ground for terrorist activities for long time so if India did what it has been doing it is nothing surprising and as we have seen over the years any body can come and go, even hide for years undetected. This was not our (civilian) intelligence agencies competency but more of a fluke or just good luck. We have known all along this govt and the last one failed miserably in curbing or eradicating the menace. This govt should have one-point agenda when it came to power but we know how they are handling the situation even words coming out of PM mouth are inappropriate and utterly disappointing and show a defeated mentality and on top our home minister is as clueless as ever before. If army is doing more than its share what is the use of high maintenance PM and his caibnet?

Ask him to get further supporting evidences, whom did he meet and whom did he pay for ? A single, isolated person cannot do much damage unless he is supported by others. Who were his Havala agents for transfer of money ? Make the entire confession more substantive and credible. The collateral details are not clearly coming out from this video, barring the confessional part.
