Two Indian spies have been taken into custody in Gilgit Baltistan after they crossed the Line of Control (LoC) and arrested by security forces in the area.
According to report by Dawn News, the spies were presented before the media at a press conference held by Gilgit SSP Raja Mirza Hassan who confirmed that the two Indian spies belonged to Indian Occupied Kashmir and were forcefully sent to Pakistan by Indian intelligence.
The two Indian spies were identified as Noor Muhammad Wani and Feroze Ahmed Lone and their belongings which included their identification and Indian currency were all seized upon their capture.
According to Feroze Ahmed Lone, both of them met a few years ago through a third party who later arranged their meeting with Indian intelligence officials who convinced the two to work for them.
Wani and Lone were told that they had to go to Pakistan by crossing the Line of Control (LoC) and when the two resisted since they weren’t ready, the Indian officials threatened to kill them and their families.
Although, they were promised financial help if they were to do as told. According to Lone, the two were given Rs. 100,000 and were told that a sum of Rs. 1 million would be paid out upon successful completion of their misson.
The Indian spies were asked to monitor the movement of Pakistan security forces and report back using WhatsApp. Wani however appealed to the Pakistan Government and the United Nations to be released saying that he belonged to a poor family.
