Pakistani military court has passed the death sentence on alleged Indian spy Khulbhushan Jhadav but Bhopal police have been feeding and sheltering Pakistani spy Sajeed Muneer for almost a year after his release from jail.
Sajeed Muneer was jailed 12 years ago for espionage but after his release, Pakistan did not respond to extradition requests by the Indian government. So, he became Bhopal police’s responsibility and District Special Branch (DSB) has been taking care of him for 10 months now.
He is kept at a place near Koh-e-Fiza police station and DSB pays for his food and necessities.
According to TOI, Bhopal police have repeatedly written to the police HQ to get his deportation process expedited but to no avail. Last week, the DSB sent another reminder to take up the issue with the ministry of external affairs so that Pakistani spy is out of their hands.
“Sajeed was released from jail on June 5 after 12 years of imprisonment for spying on Army bases in Bhopal for ISI,” said a police officer. Sajeed was arrested in Bhopal in 2004 following specific intelligence inputs while carrying confidential defence documents.
Investigations revealed that Sajeed was lured by ISI while he was on hideout after a murder case. He had murdered a Karachi youth to avenge his brother’s murder. While running away from Karachi police he came in contact with an ISI officer who offered him a deal to save him from Karachi police if he was ready to work for him in India.
