In a breakthrough, A Pakistani spy Nandlal Maharaj was on Friday arrested in Jaisalmer by a combined operation of Intelligence Bureau, RAW and other intelligence agencies of Rajasthan.
He admitted that 35 kilo of RDX has been brought in India so far. As per sources, a diary has also been recovered from him, which details the transactions that have taken place between him and Pakistani agencies.
They have also recovered several SIM cards and two mobile phones from him. It is being said that he used these to contact his Pakistani handlers. It may be noted that Pakistani SIM cards were banned in Rajasthan last year in order to clamp down on terror activities.
He was also found in possession of various maps and contact details. In order to probe about the location of RDX and other details related to it, anti-terrorist squad has been called in.
According to reports, this is for the first time that Pakistan has sent a ‘Hindu’ spy on visa and passport.
Maharaj has been staying in Jaisalmer since the last six months. He operated a textile showroom in Pakistan and has sound financial background.
This is the second such breakthrough for India's security forces and the intelligence establishment in recent days, the previous one being Bahadur Ali, a terrorist who had been caught in Jammu and Kashmir and subsequently revealed a lot of information about the terror machinery in Pakistan in a confession video.
