Lucknow: Ongoing probe by MP police anti terror squad into the recently busted Chinese SIM box enabled Pakistani spying racket has brought to the fore two key J's. This ISI spying racket has network in India had vital links in Jama Masjid Area of Old Delhi, a Naxal affected district of Bihar, asides a sensitive district of West UP.
The investigations have now zeroed on Jama Masjid area of Delhi and Maoist affected Jamui district of Bihar, which house key players of money laundering racket funding spying and subversive activities by Pakistani handlers in Jammu and Kashmir. Investigating Agency MP ATS has traced the links of the busted spying racket in Delhi, Jamui of Bihar and Amorha district of Western UP.
A notorious criminal Abdul Jabbar, the owner of Basheer guest house in Jama Masjid area, was arrested and taken to Bhopal. He was operating from old Delhi's Jama Masjid the area was under Delhi and MP police scanner for having routed around Rs 3 crores in last two years to ISI operatives in J&K. Jabbar has been already involved in several cases of crime,including drugs peddling was routing money via his trusted carriers physically or through suspected money laundrers to J&K.
The money was primarily channelised to the two alleged ISI operatives, Satwindar and Dadu, who were arrested in Jammu's RS Pura area in November 2016, sources privy to investigations confided on Thursday.
The money was deposited in bank accounts of the Delhi man by Satna (MP) based Balram, who is the alleged kingpin of the international call based spying racket busted by the MP ATS last week.
Balram, importantly is among the 11 men arrested so far by the MP ATS from four cities of MP in the matter.
The money deposited by Balram in Delhi man's accounts was withdrawn by the latter (Delhi man) from two nationalised bank ATMs regularly in the old Delhi area before being routed to J&K.
This latest revelation assumes significance as suspected hawala (money laundering) operations in national capital were mostly confined in the past to the Chandni Chowki area and hardly had any traces of it were ever found in Jama Masjid area hitherto infamous for routine crimes and drug peddling, added sources.
The man based in Jamui district of Bihar too was working on similar lines to fund ISI spying network in India.
With Jamui (one of the most backward districts of the country) being one of the Maoist extremism hotbeds in Bihar, investigators are also probing possibility of any Maoist links to the spying in India by Pak handlers.
The MP police is working in close coordination with counterparts in Bihar to dig deeper into the spying-money laundering racket operating from Jamui.
