Spying? Thought Money Was For Charity, Says Arrested Mumbai Man

Spying? Thought Money Was For Charity, Says Arrested Mumbai Man”

Mumbai: The joint operation of Uttar Pradesh Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) and its Maharashtra counterpart has cracked down on a major hawala network which was operating in India at the behest of Pakistani intelligence agency, Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).

The two were nabbed during a joint operation launched by the ATS and the UP Intelligence, reports said.

Aftab is believed to have received training from the ISI in Pakistan and was in constant touch with officials in the Pakistan High Commission, he said, adding that the ATS was in possession of strong evidence against him.

IG UP-ATS Aseem Arun on Thursday said that the UP ATS picked up Altaf Qureshi on Wednesday night from Masjid Bunder area in South Mumbai and Javed Iqbal from Yusuf Manzil building at Agreepada on Thursday morning.

But communications companies can collect the data and the NSA still can access it for national security purposes. They said they had no breakdown of how many individuals' phone records were among those collected.

Though he managed to hoodwink intelligence and security agencies all this while, his number was deemed suspicious in January when ATS arrested some people for running illegal worldwide call centre (through SIM box) in Lucknow, Hardoi and Sitapur. But they hadn't been able to link him to anything much.

ATS sources said Aftab had gathered information on several army cantonment areas and defence establishments in the state.

Ali visited Pakistan twice since, in 2014 and 2016. Qureshi had allegedly deposited money in Ali's bank account so that he could carry out espionage activities.

He had allegedly provided information about the army's movements and units in Faizabad, Lucknow and Amritsar.

The site of the attack was along a tree-covered avenue that is a major thoroughfare for students walking to and from class. Harrison Brown , a 2016 graduate of Graham High School, was killed in a stabbing attack at the University of Texas.

Iqbal told police that he would get instructions from Pakistan. "Based on the information extracted from Ali, the arrests of some more people from Faizabad and Lucknow are likely to take place", said an official. He is a resident of Khawaspura area of the district.

A source from ATS said that Javed completed his graduation from Sydenham College a few years ago and got into the hawala business in 2009.

Central Intelligence Agencies have been sharing inputs with the UP Police since February about increased activity of terrorists in the State.
