Jammu: The BJP on Thursday demanded a thorough probe into the links of Kashmiri separatist Ghulam Nabi Fai, arrested by the FBI on Tuesday on charges of receiving hundreds and thousands of dollars from the ISI and using them for lobbying at the Capitol Hill.

"The arrest of Fai for being an agent of Pakistan ISI is simply the tip of the iceberg," BJP national executive Member Jitendra Singh told reporters here.

He alleged that "several politicians, activists and scribes have been on pay roll of foreign agencies for their anti-India activities and this calls for a thorough probe."

Singh accused the authorities of turning a blind eye to the activities of Fai and his associates and appeasing the separatists.

"The arrest also vindicates the BJP's stand that the so called separatist movement in Kashmir is sponsored by foreign powers hostile to India," he said.

Singh, who was recently denied visa to visit Washington as a member of BJP delegation, said it is a shame that those involved in anti-India tirade are allowed to travel to the US, while the "nationalists" are denied permission.

He demanded that the government come out with a report on the progress made in state operations against hawala channels funding Kashmir separatists.
