New Delhi: Explosives details are emerging on the massive ISI-run spy rung busted by Indian intelligence agencies.
English news channel CNN-IBN, Monday, claimed that there are indications that someone in the Pakistan High Commission in Delhi had helped the spy ring.
The news channel based its assessment on the unprecedented access that the Pakistani spies managed to secure in India.
Two persons were held in connection with the Jammu and Kashmir spy ring and three others in a similar operation in Kolkata.
Those arrested in Jammu and Kashmir have been identified as Border Security Force (BSF) head constable Abdul Rasheed and Pakistani intelligence operative Kafaitullah Khan alias Master Raja.
Khan is a resident of Rajouri district of Jammu and Kashmir, while Rasheed was posted with the BSF intelligence wing in the same district.
Khan, an agent of ISI, was involved in gathering information concerning the deployment of security forces and information on the Indian Air Force.
The three people arrested by the Kolkata Police's Special Task Force (STF) were identified as Irshad Ansari (51), a contract labourer with Garden Reach Shipbuilders & Engineers Limited (GRSE), his son Asfaq Ansari (23) and relative Mohammed Jahangir.
The arrests come days after suspected ISI agent was arrested in Meerut. Security agencies say there could be a link to all the arrests.
