Pakistan charges 'RAW agent' with sabotage

Islamabad:  An alleged Indian spy arrested in Pakistan has been charged with sabotage and terrorism related charges, a newspaper said on Tuesday. The Counter-Terrorism Department in Quetta had lodged a case against Kulbhushan Jadhav, who was arrested from Balochistan last month on charges of being an agent of the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW). The News International quoted police sources as saying that the case was registered on the complaint of the Balochistan home department on the directives of the federal government. "Terrorism, Foreign Act violation and sabotage charges have been included in the FIR," the sources said, adding the FIR was sealed off soon after it was lodged. India has admitted that Jadhav worked earlier for the navy but denied he was a RAW agent. According to Islamabad, Jadhav was based in Iran and regularly visited Pakistan's Balochistan region.
