NIA puts Pakistani diplomat on wanted list

International

New Delhi: The National Investigation Agency has put a Pakistani diplomat on its wanted list and released his picture.

It said the diplomat; Amir Zubair Siddiqui was posted as a visa counselor in the Pakistani High

Commission in Colombo and had been included in the list along with two other Pakistani officers

for conspiring to launch 26/11 type attacks on US and Israeli consulates besides Army and Navy commands in south India in 2014.

NIA added, a fourth Pakistani officer posted in the high commission in Sri Lanka was also involved in the conspiracy.

The development comes even as the agency is preparing to send a request to Interpol seeking red corner notices against the Pakistani officers who have reportedly been ousted to Islamabad.

 

While the NIA charge sheeted Siddiqui in February, the other three officers could not be identified. The two who have been put on the wanted list apart from Siddiqui are a Pakistani intelligence officer who went by his alias Vineeth and another official code named Boss alias Shah. This is the first time that India has put a Pakistani diplomat’s name in the wanted list or sought a red corner notice against one.
