Naela Quadri denies RAW presence in Balochistan, seeks India's support against genocide

Naela Quadri Baloch also blamed the Nawaz Sharif-led Pakistan government of genocide against Balochis and sought India's intervention in the restive province of Balochistan.

World Baloch Women's Forum President Naela Quadri Baloch today denied having any information about alleged Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) agent Kulbhushan Yadav, whom Pakistan claims to have arrested from Balochistan.

"It's a lie, we don't know from where they have arrested him (Kulbhushan Yadav) and they're showing that it was from Pakistan," she said.

Naela Quadri Baloch also blamed the Nawaz Sharif-led Pakistan government of genocide against Balochis and sought India's intervention in the restive province of Balochistan.

 

"Balochistan is not in Pakistan, it is occupied by Pakistan," she added.

Rubbishing Pakistan's claim of RAW presence in Balochistan, Naela Quadri Baloch said, "There is no RAW or any other agency that supports Balochistan."

India and Pakistan are at loggerheads over the arrest of former Navy officer Kulbhushan Yadav, who Pakistan claims is an Indian spy.

The Pakistan Army released a video of Yadav, purportedly confessing to his involvement in terror activities in Balochistan at India's behest, a charge rubbished by India. India has also rejected the allegations of Yadav's involvement in subversive activities in Pakistan, and hinted at his possible abduction from Iran.

New Delhi has further sought consular access to the purported RAW agent and expressed concern about his well-being.

Pakistan has time and again accused India of interference in Balochistan, the country's largest province.
