ISLAMABAD: Pakistan will send a formal reference to Iran seeking investigation into presence of the Indian spy agency, Research and Analysis Wing, in Chabahar and influx of its agents into Balochistan and other parts of Pakistan.

According to sources, Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan raised the issue with his Iranian counterpart Abdul Raza Rehmani at a meeting on Saturday and the latter asked the former to send a formal reference in this regard.

“We will send a formal reference to Iran in a day or two to get information that may help investigate the matter,” a spokesman of the interior ministry told Dawn on Sunday.

Security agencies captured a RAW agent, Kulbhushan Yadav, from Balochistan who possessed an Indian identity card with his name as Mubarak Hussain Patel.

According to media reports, the RAW network was being operated from Chabahar Port.

“In the reference, Pakistan will ask Iran how Indian spy agency’s network was being operated in Chabahar and one of its agents had come to Pakistan via Iranian border,” the interior ministry spokesman said.

The spokesman said the Iranian government would also be urged to take appropriate action against the RAW network operating from its port city.
