Indian Spy, as alleged by Pakistan, Kulbhushan Jadhav who is current in Pak's custody was kidnapped from Iran's Chabahar by mercenaries under the orders of Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), a Baloch activist told CNN-News18 on Thursday.

The activist Mama Qadeer alleged that Pakistan's ISI agent stationed in Balochistan named Mullah Omar Baloch Irani was paid millions to abduct Jadhav. He further conveyed that the members of  ‘Voice for Missing Balochs', an organisation which he is Vice-President to, have witnessed the first-hand kidnapping.

"Kulbhushan Jadhav was kidnapped from Chabahar in Iran by Mullah Omar Baloch Irani. Our coordinators were there. ISI paid Mullah Omar crores of rupees to kidnap Jadhav," Qadeer confirmed. He further revealed that Qadeer has earlier abducted many Baloch activists for fighting Pakistani rule over the sprawling province.

Baloch revealed that Jadhav’s hands were tied and he was blindfolded as the abductors pushed him into a car. As per the information received by the activist from his network of coordinators spread across Balochistan, Jadhav was taken to a town on the Iran-Balochistan border called Mashkel from Chabahar and then transported to the provincial capital of Quetta before sending off to Islamabad.

Revealing further details, Baloch said, "We knew that Kulbhushan Jadhav was a businessman in Iran. A double door car was hired and Kulbhushan Jadhav was blindfolded, his hands were tied and he was kidnapped from Chabahar in Iran. He was then brought to Mashkel in Balochistan which is on Iran-Pakistan border."

He said, "This was where he was handed over to ISI. The ISI declared that they caught Jadhav in Balochistan. In fact, Jadhav didn't even come to Balochistan. He was kidnapped from Iran by Mullah Omar Baloch," adding "When he (Jadhav) was brought to Balochistan, the news spread about his kidnapping."

The channel quotes Baloch saying, "When our coordinators tried to investigate, no one had any information about his alleged work in Balochistan. Whenever there is any kidnapping or murder, our coordinators inform us and we update our list. So, when our coordinators investigated, we got to know that he had never been to Balochistan."

Putting forward the credibility of his sources, Baloch conveyed, "We have one coordinator in 28 districts with Baloch presence. No coordinator, no Balochi has ever seen him in Balochistan." Bringing a shocking fact to notice, he said, "ISI knows about everyone who enters or exits Balochistan. There are check posts everywhere. It's not possible for any foreigner to enter Balochistan without ISI's knowledge."

When further asked about their organisation's willingness to provide legal aid to Jadhav, Baloch without hesitance said, "We (Voice of Missing Balochs) are ready to help Jadhav legally in a court of law. We have eyewitnesses who will prove his innocence. He never crossed border to come to Balochistan, so how is he involved in attacks?"
