ISI agent Mohammad Eizaz in STF custody
The Special Task Force (STF) of the city police got the ISI agent Mohammad Eizaz alias Kalam in their custody after being produced before the Bankshall Court on Tuesday.
Eizaz, who is a Pakistani national, was arrested from Meerut Cantt area when he was heading towards Delhi. He used to pass information of important establishments to his counterparts in Pakistan.
He was brought to the city on Monday night and remanded in the custody of the police till June 23 after being produced before the court on Tuesday afternoon.
It may recalled that the STF had arrested three other ISI including Irshad Ansari, his son Asfaq Ansari and their relative Mohammad Jahangir from Garden Reach area in November 2015.
All three of them used to work as contractual labourer in Garden Reach Shipbuilders and Engineers Limited (GRSE). The investigation had revealed that they used to collect details and photographs of warship of the Indian Navy built in the shipyard and passed those to their counterparts in Pakistan.
The trio had connection with Eizaz and they had given him shelter in Kolkata after he had sneaked into the country. Later he had moved to Meerut from Kolkata and got arrested before he had managed to move to Delhi.
The city police’s STF officers had urged co-operation of the Meerut Police to interrogate Eizaz.
Two senior police officers from Meerut had come to the city in February for a discussion with the top brass of the city police and they had also interrogated Irshad, Asfaq and Jahangir following the discussion with the police. Irshad had helped Eizaz to get the fake voter’s identity card when he entered India via Bangladesh.
Investigating officers of STF have prepared a list of questions that they would be asking to the ISI agent to know what information they had passed to Pakistan. Moreover, they would also ask about one Pravin who had helped him to cross the India-Bangladesh border.
If needed the police would question all four of them face-to-face and to know whether there is any more ISI agents operating in any part of the country.
