Panama Papers overcast RAW agent story in media
Islamabad, Pakistan: “There can be a link between the arrest of RAW agent in Pakistan and timing of releasing of Panama Papers because Panama Leak story had thrown Yadev issue out of national and international media although Panama Leaks are yet to establish its credibility and look like a cooked story; having selective information to share with certain political motives.
Panama Papers have taken attention of people and this is apparently serving the cause of Indians who wished to black out or put away Yadev story from International and Pakistani media but the decision of Pakistan to raise the issue of arrest of Yadev on every diplomatic and legal forum in the world including United Nations (UN) is a timely decision.
World should accept that concerns of Pakistan regarding RAW sponsored terrorism in Pakistan were not unfounded and now confessional statement of RAW agent testified that how RAW had been executing and planning terrorism activities inside Pakistan.
Timely decision of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to brief P-5 and EU on the issue following the arrest of Kulbushan Yadav and his confession of involvement in subversive activities and Pakistan was an excellent move and Pakistan should continue to use every possible forum to raise this important and sensitive issue because Pakistan sacrificed over 50,000 innocent people on the hands of terrorist those are sponsored and linked with Indian intelligence agencies”.
These were observation of participants in one of the most popular PTV Current Affairs show “Khabar Kay Sath Sath” hosted and anchored by Naheed Chaudhary while senior journalists Tariq Mehmood Chaudhary, Rana Qaisar and Agha Iqrar Haroon were present as experts.
Experts maintained that Indian media is also opening its mouth and confirmed that top intelligence officers in India are of the view that after 14 years of working in the region, Yadev had become a bit unworried of being arrested and over confident that led to his arrest in Pakistan.
Experts cited reports from Indian media that Indian spy circles suspect that his phone was on surveillance by ISI when he was working in Iran and his habit to talk to his children in local accent of Marathi raised more questions about his real identity.
Experts maintained that International Community is being briefed through Pakistani missions abroad as the investigation progresses and more evidence becomes available.
Looking into Indian media, experts cited that Indian newspapers publish in Hindi and Marathi languages reported last week that Yadev was using fake passport for getting Iranian visas that had no record in Thane Regional Passport Office (RPO) and Thane police commissioner, Param Bir Singh has confessed that passport was not issued from Thane RPO.
Hindi newspapers reported that Yadev last visited Mumbai in November-December and he could be under watch by the Pakistani agencies network within Mumbai.
Experts added that Yadev lost contact with his family in February 2016 and his family had fears that Monkey (his code name) was in the custody of Pakistan or was in some serious situation.
Experts were of the view that arrest of Yadev was not an arrest of a person rather exposure a deep and well knitted networking and credits must go to top intelligence agencies of Pakistan to unearth such deep rooted networking.
Experts maintained that the fallout of the Jadhav’s arrest is the frantic response from Indian intelligence agencies including Lahore bomb blast that cause the death of over 70 innocent civilians including women and children.
Experts were of the view that there could be a link between the arrest of Yadev and Panama Leak story because Panama Leak story had thrown Yadev issue out of national and international media while Panama Leaks looked liked cooked, selective and having some motives.
