Muhammad Ahmad Sheikh Muhammad Rafiq, a Pakistani passport holder, deboarded an Air India flight from Dubai and approached a help desk at the Delhi airport and conveyed to a lady at the counter that he wanted to share information about Pakistan’s spy agency, ISI.
‘Hello, I am an ISI agent. But I don’t wish to continue any further and want to remain in India,’ the man told the lady.
The lady, who was left confused and surprised, did not waste time in informing security officials who detained him immediately and apprised the central intelligence agencies of the same.
38-year-old Rafiq had arrived here by Air India’s flight from Dubai and was further booked for Kathmandu. However, he did not take the next flight and decided to break the journey and walked up to the help-desk counter at the airport.
During questioning, Rafiq said he was connected with the ISI but had decided to call it a day and remain in India, officials said.
He was whisked away to an undisclosed destination where he was being questioned by sleuths from various central intelligence agencies, they said, adding his claims were being verified.
