Two Pakistani visa assistants of Pakistan High Commission in Delhi have been caught spying by Delhi Police on Sunday. They have been identified as Abid Hussain and Tahir Khan.
They were caught red-handed by police while obtaining documents of Indian security establishment from an Indian and handing him over money and an iPhone.
Special Cell of Delhi Police has also recovered a Fake Aadhar Card from Pakistan High Commission official Abid Hussain with the fake identity of Nasir Gotam during the raid in Karol Bagh today.
They initially claimed they were Indian nationals and showed fake Aadhaar cards. Later, during interrogation, they confessed that they were officials at Pakistan High Commission and worked for Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).
Abid Hussain and Tahir Khan work as Visa Assistants at Pakistan High commission in Delhi and are ISI operatives. They were caught while while they were doing an unwanted anti-India activity.
They are suspected to be involved in a case of espionage. Since the Vienna Convention protects them, India will soon declare both of them persona non grata and will ask them to leave the country within 48 hours.
Both ISI operatives used to roam around assuming fake Indian identities who have been caught red handed by Delhi Police and will be sent back to Pakistan in next 48 hours.
