Both individuals were presented before the media and they confessed to espionage in Pakistan on the behest of India. The detained spies said that Indians had intimidated them into working for them against Pakistan.

Indian spies arrested: India is destabilizing Pakistan?
India has always been responsible for exploiting ethnic fault lines in Pakistan. It is worth recalling that Commander Kulbhushan Jadhav, an Indian army officer working in Pakistan, was arrested during an intelligence operation conducted in Balochistan in March 2016, and he was apprehended after illegally crossing the Baloch border from Iran. Jadhav was travelling on an original Indian passport under the fake name of Hussein Mubarak Patel.
Later, recorded video statements of his confession were released, where a comfortable and at-ease Jadhav was seen confessing all his crimes of espionage. He revealed that he was working under the directives of India’s premier spy agency, RAW, and confessed about his involvement in subversive activities and terrorist attacks targeting Karachi and Balochistan.
In April 2017, a verdict of the Pakistani military court awarded Jadhav a death sentence after holding him responsible for espionage and subversive activities.
Jadhav later filed a clemency petition before the Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa, and his plea for mercy is still pending before the Army Chief.
India then approached the International Court of Justice to file a case against Pakistan for not providing Jadhav with consular access. Pakistan then implemented what the ICJ had said. India was not only exposed before the world but also the ICJ did not ask Pakistan to release the spy.
Indian spies arrested from Germany
German prosecutors have charged an Indian man with spying on the Sikh community and Kashmir activists in Germany for India’s intelligence service for more than two years, reported Al Jazeera. The federal prosecutor’s office said on Wednesday that espionage charges against the suspect, identified only as Balvir S in line with German privacy rules, were filed at a state court in Frankfurt.
He is accused of agreeing to pass the information on Sikhs and the ‘Kashmir movement’ and their relatives to an employee of India’s Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), the foreign intelligence agency of India, on or before January 2015.
According to prosecutors, the suspect was in regular telephonic and personal contact with the Germany-based intelligence officer and passed on information ‘in numerous cases’ until December 2017. “He allegedly provided information about figures in the Sikh opposition scene and the Kashmiri movement and their relatives in Germany, and passed this on to his handlers who were working at the Indian consulate general in Frankfurt,” the higher regional court in the city said in a statement earlier this week.
