QUETTA: An agent working for the Afghan National Directorate of Security (NDS) – Afghanistan’s premier spy agency – was arrested from Chaman district in Balochistan Wednesday morning, officials said.
A Frontier Corps (FC) spokesman said personnel conducted a raid on a compound in Boghra, a residential and commercial area in Chaman, and picked up an agent working for the NDS.
The spokesman said the ‘spy’ was supplying weapons and explosive materials for terrorist activities inside Balochistan.
Intelligence agencies are interrogating the agent, he added.
The arrest comes just weeks after forces arrested Kulbushan Jadhav, an Indian agent 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.
