The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Monday demanded a Supreme Court monitored SIT probe into the spy ring, recently busted in Madhya Pradesh, alleging that some accused in the case were local BJP workers.
“Nobody knew that BJP, who had invited ISI to probe the Pathankot terror strike, was nurturing Pakistan agency agents in its own party,” Delhi Labour Minister Gopal Rai told media.
“This fact came to light, when the ISI espionage racket (snooping important Indian establishments) was bared in MP. Efforts are on to cover-up the issue,” he said.
“It is surprising that such persons have entered your house and your party and you are not aware of it,” Rai added.
“The espionage is not an issue which is restricted to MP alone. This malady should be investigated in-depth. AAP demands a Supreme Court monitored SIT probe into the case,” he further said.
“Its slogans about patriotism had raised doubts since the beginning given that its founders had no connection with nationalism during the freedom struggle,” he added.
Earlier, ATS had arrested eleven people for allegedly being part of the espionage ring from various places in Madhya Pradesh.
A widely circulated picture in the social media had showed one of the accused in the Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI)-backed spy racket, busted in Madhya Pradesh on February 9, in the company of Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan.
