Pak claims arrest of RAW agent from Balochistan

January 02, 2010 11:37 IST

Pakistani security officials have claimed arresting an agent of Indian intelligence agency, the Research and Analysis Wing from Qila Saifullah district in Balochistan.

Officials said they apprehended the alleged RAW agent, Abdul Salam, during a raid on a refugee camp following an intelligence tip-off.

Salam is said to be an Afghan national.

"We believe he works for RAW. He entered Pakistan via Afghanistan and hid himself in a refugee camp," The Daily Times quoted an official as saying.

An official, who spoke on conditions of anonymity, said important documents and maps were also recovered from Salam's possession.
