Indian spies in Pakistan

On 7/4/2011 Gopal Dass crossed the Wagah border and stepped into India. He was in Pakistani prison for 27 years. Prior to release it had been reported that Gopal Dass had inadvertently crossed the border and stepped into Pakistan. Gopal Dass after his entry into India said he was an Indian spy, had gone to Pakistan to spy, did not regret spying for India as it was his duty but the government abandoned him and did not want Indians to spy for the government. There are at least 30 Indian spies in Pakistani jails.

India regularly sends spies to Pakistan some of whom get caught. Mohanlal Bhaskar wrote his autobiography. He and many other Indian spies were betrayed by an Indian spy. The betrayer was also put in jail by Pakistanis.

India should acknowledge its spies and have an agreement with Pakistan for exchange of spies caught. Americans and Russians do it.

Some years back Kashmir Singh was released. He told he was a spy. Some days later Hamid Mir, a Pakistani, said on Times Now, Pakistan released Kashmir Singh and he went smiling. Next day India sent the body of Khalid Mehmood, a Pakistani cricket fan who had gone to India to watch a cricket match. Khalid Mehmood had died a few days before Kashmir Singh’s release. Some say he was a Pakistani spy.

One Indian spy who was released took part in a TV programme. He said Indian prisoners were kept separate from Pakistani prisoners.

Many countries send spies as diplomats and they have diplomatic immunity. When they are caught they are expelled and they return to their country. What does India want to know by sending spies? Many things can be known through satellites. Pakistan accuses India of terrorist activities. If Indian spies are doing it India should stop it.
