"RAW and Afghanistan's NDS (National Directorate of Security — intelligence agency) have launched joint secret operations against Pakistan by using three Indian consulates in Jalalabad, Kandahar and Mazar-e-Sharif,” said Secretary Defence Alam Khattak on Wednesday.

"The three consulates in Afghanistan are providing weapons, money, training and other logistical support to agents for subversive activities in FATA (Federally Administered Tribal Areas), Balochistan and Karachi in Pakistan," he said.

The remarks were made while he briefed the Senate defence committee at Parliament House, Dawn online reported.

RAW has also set-up a cell at NDS headquarters in Kabul for coordinating anti-Pakistan activities, the secretary defence said.

Referring to the recent arrest of Kulbushan Jadhav, a deep cover RAW operative arrested from Balochistan, Khattak elaborated that his entire network has been dismantled by Pakistani security agencies.

Law enforcement agencies announced the arrest of Jadhav during an intelligence-based raid in Balochistan's Chaman last week.

Jadhav was later shifted to Islamabad for interrogation.
