Pakistan authorities claim to have identified two Indian spies who were allegedly actively involved in terrorist activities in Balochistan. According to reports in GeoTV, both of the spies, namely Swami Asemanand and Gobind entered Pakistan from Iran.
The two alleged spies were involved in criminal activity in the Mastung area of Balochistan before fleeing to Afghanistan. Pakistan has shared details with Iran and Afghanistan regarding the Indian agents and also wrote a letter to the authorities in the two countries.
Pakistan has consistently blamed India for sabotaging peace in Pakistan and had arrested alleged-spy Kulbhushan Jhadav in 2016. It is alleged by the Pakistani government that he was arrested in the Pakistani province of Balochistan on charges of terrorism and spying for India’s intelligence agency.
On 10 April 2017, Indian foreign ministry said he had been “kidnapped last year from Iran and his subsequent presence in Pakistan has never been properly explained by Islamabad.
The Pakistani government stated that he was a serving commander in the Indian Navy who was involved in subversive activities inside Pakistan and was arrested on 3 March 2016 during a counter-intelligence operation in Balochistan.
The Indian government recognised Jadhav as a former naval officer but denied any current links with him and maintained that he took premature retirement and was abducted from Iran.
