Afghan intelligence officer arrested in Chaman for crossing border illegally

ISLAMABAD: An officer of the Afghan intelligence agency was arrested inside Pakistani territory near Chaman border crossing in Balochistan on Thursday, the interior ministry said.

The ministry said the Afghan officer named Rozi Khan — reportedly a second lieutenant in the intelligence unit of the Afghan army — was arrested by Fedral Intelligence Agency (FIA) officials in Chaman over charges of crossing the border without possessing any authentic travel documents to enter into Pakistan.

The Afghan official was handed over to intelligence agencies by FIA which then shifted him to an undisclosed location for questioning, DawnNews reported.

It further reported that the intelligence agencies are currently interrogating the arrested Afghan officer.

Earlier this month, an agent working for the Afghan National Directorate of Security (NDS) – Afghanistan's premier spy agency – was also arrested from Chaman district by Frontier Corps.

The arrest of suspected Afghan intelligence officials comes after forces arrested an Indian agent Kulbushan Jadhav from Balochistan, who Pakistan said was involved in "terror activities" in the province.

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

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.

No doubt Indian RAW and Afghan NDS are working together to spread terrorism inside Pakistan. We need to toughen up and deploy counter measures. Deterrence has to work at all levels of statehood, not just in nuclear domain.

Naxalite Apr 28, 2016 10:18pm

Send him back with all the Afghani Migrants.

Khan -Pakistani , USA Apr 28, 2016 10:19pm

These people will never learn and need to be taught a lesson by punishing them . Enough is enough . About Indians we know their history, intensions and motives but this jackal in the dress of a lamb is the most dangerous enemy we are facing now !

Khan, Canada Apr 28, 2016 10:23pm

Great job. Thorough investigations should be done. NO open border policy. All Afghans should enter with proper travel documents and visas.

T.M.Wazir Apr 28, 2016 10:31pm

We have a soft spot for Afghan people but not for these security agents trained by raw.cuff and interrogate him.

waseem Apr 28, 2016 10:59pm

& the president of few streets of Kabul keep blaming Pakistan. Still doing a good job as a puppet.

Noshin Apr 28, 2016 11:03pm

Ashraf Ghani keeps on blaming Pakistan but here is the real face of his country

Karachitee Apr 28, 2016 11:11pm

Install Laser wall!

Mir Hammal Apr 28, 2016 11:12pm

Some political parties are backing afghani migrants presence in Pakistan and want them to be included in the CENSUS, overlooking the fact that with these migrants come these Agents with their subversive agendas. Pakistani government should seal the border being shared with Afghanistan and drive out Afghani migrants for our peaceful future.

Salman Apr 28, 2016 11:13pm

Our agencies got the direction right now.Salute them for their efforts.

Sheraz Apr 28, 2016 11:13pm

Arrest each and every one of them and take them to the task!!

Cavalier Apr 28, 2016 11:29pm

Good job Pakistani agencies. Get hold of all the perpetrators. Pakistan zindabad.

Cavalier Apr 28, 2016 11:32pm

We have got very good neighbour's who just want to see Pakistan prosper. But their style is exceptionally cute.

GAK Wazir Apr 28, 2016 11:57pm

Now the Afghan intelligence agencies seem to have joined the anti-Pakistan bloc. This move of theirs will have negative consequences in the region. Better to sit with Pakistani spy agencies and redress each other's grievances, if any, instead of promoting mudslinging practice. Sending NDS personnel into Pakistani territory for terrorist activities is a premeditated act to destabilise the land which accommodated and is still accommodating them for decades.

rashid Apr 29, 2016 12:07am

We need to seal that border asap.

Farhan Apr 29, 2016 12:10am

Another RAW agent.

Skeptic Apr 29, 2016 12:30am

Not too intelligent!

RIZ Apr 29, 2016 01:21am

Good job and now please send very strong message to Afghanistan that none of them come to Pakistan without a proper visa. Send this person to a special cell and get all information out. I bet he was paid by RAW so let's treat him as a raw materiel.

Jazib Apr 29, 2016 01:24am

Lack of professionalism from Afghanistan is going to hurt ties between the two countries. Acting responsibly and acknowledging mistakes is the way to go.

Gulfraz Suleman Apr 29, 2016 01:46am

Well done.

Zain Abedin Apr 29, 2016 01:50am

India and Afghanistan are not sincere. When will the world and Pakistani liberals realize this?

Zak Apr 29, 2016 02:56am

Take this up with Abdullah Adbullah and Mr Ghani, we need straight answers , these activities will no longer be tolerated .

ISRA Apr 29, 2016 02:59am

He should have been kept under the radar to determine the motives and the activities before the arrest ?

Akil Akhtar Apr 29, 2016 04:53am

Due to political parties in KPK we are unable to close the border with their so called Afghan brothers. These parties need to get their priorities right.....

Akil Akhtar Apr 29, 2016 04:53am

time to make Afghanistan pay.....

Akil Akhtar Apr 29, 2016 04:53am

Indian and Afghan agents are being captured inside Pakistan and they still insist we are the problem.....

ibs Apr 29, 2016 05:03am

@waseem I like that.

President of a few streets in Kabul - Ashraf Ghani

Kashmiri Nationalist Apr 29, 2016 05:06am

His future looks bleak, just like that treacherous Indian spy. Rogue elements of the NDS and RAW don't stand a chance in Pakistan. ISI hears and sees almost everything. If you're going to send spies, don't get caught with your pants down.

Bang Bang Apr 29, 2016 05:39am

India activates eight laser walls along border with Pakistan why not us do the Same to AF

flying star Apr 29, 2016 06:00am

sfomann Apr 29, 2016 07:50am

He and his associates are probably responsible for numerous deaths of innocent Pakistanis. We must be punished accordingly

Khan -Pakistani , USA Apr 29, 2016 08:23am

Arrest them and punish them !

Sohail Wazir Apr 29, 2016 08:42am

@waseem excellent comment brother .

Afghanistan is back stabber. After India, Afghanistan is our second enemy backed by India.

Sunil Apr 29, 2016 09:13am

Another kidnapping to prove who is who.

imdadali Apr 29, 2016 11:06am

Continuous hurl over Pakistan that he is involved behind each attack taking place in the Afghistan depict ugly face of the Afghistan after arrest of their spy crossing Chamman border illegally. We should keep strict watch over movement of immigrants because from where spy of Afghistan, India and Israil is entering in pakistan. Recent arrest of spy Rozi Khan and spy Kulbushan Jadhav is its evidence that they are spoiling peace of the pakistan . The issue may be taken up with UNO so that every one could be aware about illegal interfere being made in our country. Afghistan is selfish because at every forum pakistan helped him and proved him his best friend but despite of fact that he is having soft corner for indian and making conspiracies. It is clear proof of its ulterior motives that in every district of the Afighstan there is indian embassy which all are working against our country.
