Washington: `Brylcreem` and `30 plus`
were some of the codes used for monetary transactions between
Pakistan`s snooping agency ISI and Kashmiri propogandist Syed
Ghulam Nabi Fai, who was arrested by the FBI recently here.
In the affidavit submitted by the FBI, investigators
said that Fai`s Pakistani handler Javed Azeed Khan asked him
if he had received all the goods. In reply Fai told him that
everything has been received except "Brylcreem, 75 milligram".

the transferring USD 75,000 demanded by Fai from his
ISI-handlers for running Kashmiri propaganda in the US
through his Kashmiri American Council unearthed by the
American probe agency.
