In a strange incident, a passenger approached the Indira Gandhi International Airport officials on Friday and alleged that he was an Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agent.
"Hello, I am an ISI agent. But I don’t wish to continue any further and want to remain in India,” the passenger told a help desk at the Airport on Friday after arriving on an Air India flight from Dubai.
Muhammad Ahmad Sheikh Muhammad Rafiq, a Pakistani passport holder, deboarded an Air India flight from Dubai and approached a help desk at the Delhi airport and conveyed to a lady at the counter that he wanted to share information about Pakistan's spy agency, ISI.
The claim sent the security at Terminal 3 into a tizzy, with intelligence agencies being immediately alerted.
38-year-old Rafiq had arrived here by Air India's flight from Dubai and was further booked for Kathmandu. However, he did not take the next flight and decided to break the journey and walked up to the help-desk counter at the airport.
During questioning, Rafiq said he was connected with the ISI but had decided to call it a day and remain in India, officials said.
Sources said that there is a possibility that he is lying, but officials are checking his passport details to know where he travelled in the past few months.
He was whisked away to an undisclosed destination where he was being questioned by officials from various central intelligence agencies, they said, adding his claims were being verified.
