India Spying on N-plants: Pak?

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan's Interior Ministry has asked provincial authorities to step up vigilance at the country's nuclear installations on suspicion that Indian and Israeli intelligence are spying on them, a newspaper reported Friday.

"According to the ministry, Indian and Israeli intelligence agencies had trained 25 Afghans in Kabul and sent them to Pakistan to glean information about its nuclear installations," Daily Times reported quoting the BBC Urdu service.

It said in a letter dated March 5, the ministry warned the provincial authorities to be "extra vigilant".

At the same time, BBC quoted Interior Minister Aftab Ahmed Khan Sherpao as saying he was not aware of any such letter.

The ministry also said that a second group of Afghans was also being trained in Kabul and that two men, identified as Hazrat Ali and Haji Zahir, had been assigned to recruit spies.

The ministry also alleged that the Indian government had supplied fake Pakistani currency to the two Afghans, the report said.

"The ministry directed the provincial governments to be on the alert for suspicious Afghans and send regular updates on their measures in this regard", it added.
