A ‘serving Indian naval intelligence officer’ allegedly working for Indian intelligence agency Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) has been arrested by security forces near the Pakistan-Afghan border region in the Chaman area of Balochistan, Express News reported on Thursday.

According to initial reports, Balochistan Home Minister Sarfaraz Bugti has confirmed Bhoshan Yadav’s involvement in fueling unrest in the troubled province. Last year, Bugti had claimed RAW and NDS are behind the funding and training of Baloch Republican Army (BRA) militants.

The suspect, who was is believed to have been working with insurgent commanders in the region, has been moved to Islamabad, Express News reported.  A statement from the military’s media wing, ISPR, is expected to be issued in connection with the arrest.

    Lol “Bhoshan Yadav”? If you are going to use a fake name, at least make the effort to look authentic. It should be “Bhushan” not “Bhoshan”. Also, how come nobody ever gets to see these so called “RAW agents” in flesh once they are arrested. If this is indeed for real then please expose “Mr. Bhoshan Yadav” in front of the international media & tell everyone as to where he’s from in India. Recommend

    “Bhoshan Yadav’s” ?? Seriously?

    So how about presenting Mr Yadav in public?

    Besides an Indian would spell this name as “Bhushan Yadav”, and not the way indicated here! At least do the research on Indian names before making up a story. Recommend

    Please provide evidence publically. We hear lot of such stories but then nothing happens. Seems like propaganda to justify continued action in Baluchistan.Recommend

    A picture and public trial would go a long way in providing credence to this story.Recommend

    He should be tried in the military court and if proven then he should be expected. No need to keep him in jail for life. Recommend
