Balochistan arrest: Swamy takes on 'habitual liar' Pakistan

Balochistan arrest: Swamy takes on

Submitted by Rashmi on Sat, 2016-03-26 14:59 New Delhi: Rubbishing Pakistan's claim of arresting a Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) agent in Balochistan province, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy on Saturday alleged that Islamabad is a 'habitual liar'. "Pakistan is habituated to telling lies. They can tell lies that Kasab is not a Pakistani, they can say somebody is a RAW person. All these years they have not been able to find a single person. We don't know how this retired person was seduced to go to Baluchistan.. . Let them hold him and allow relation to deteriorate between India and Pakistan," Swamy told ANI here. He also said that talks with Pakistan is useless as the elected government is a dummy government. "It has no say; it is the militancy, the ISIS who runs Pakistan. And this is one more example of how it will be very frustrating for us to try for peaceful relations with Pakistan," he added. The Pakistan security forces earlier this week arrested a man during a raid in Balochistan province who, according to them, is 'a serving officer in the Indian Navy and deputed to RAW. The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) had earlier said that Indian Government has no link with the arrested individual, adding that New Delhi has no interest in interfering in internal matters of any country. MEA spokesperson Vikas Swarup said that the matter was raised today by Pakistan's Foreign Secretary with the Indian High Commissioner in Islamabad. "The said individual has no link with Government since his premature retirement from Indian Navy," Swarup said. A Pakistan security official earlier told Dawn that the arrested individual had been shifted to Islamabad for interrogation, as he was suspected of involvement in various acts of terrorism and other dissident activities in Balochistan.
