In ongoing effort to counter anti-state elements after the arrest of Indian intelligence officer from Balochistan, the Frontier Constabulary (FC) personnel on Wednesday detained an Afghan intelligence agent in Chaman town, near the Pak-Afghan border.

According to FC spokesperson, the Afghan officer was arrested during a raid in Shuhdan area.

Explosives and heavy weapons including four SMGs, hundreds of bullets and sniper scope were recovered from a house where the suspect was hiding, the spokesperson added.

“These weapons were to be used for terrorist activities in Balochistan,” a source told Waqt News.

Last month Pakistani Intelligence agencies arrested RAW agent name Kulbhushan Jadhav, which is believed to be the biggest arrest in recent intelligence history of the region. In a government released video Jadhav accepted that he was in Pakistan to spread terrorism and fuel insurgency in Balochistan.

Following the Bacha Khan University attack in January, Pakistan had shared intelligence with Afghan authorities asserting that the perpetrators had come from Afghanistan. Pakistan pressed the Afghan government to launch an operation against militant elements on its territory.

Pak-Afghan border is penetrated by militants for terror activities in both countries. Its length allows easy passage for militants.

Both states have vowed on a number of occasions to curb these elements together.
