Book 'Spy Stories: Inside the Secret World of the RAW and the ISI'

  • These are some of the claims in Spy Stories: Inside the Secret World of the RAW and the ISI, journalist couple Adrian Levy and Cathy Scott-Clark's latest book, published by Juggernaut, on the alleged secret dealings of Indian and Pakistani intelligence agencies.
  • While the authors have pieced together the anecdotes in the book from talking to several high-profile serving and retired spies, their main sources are two lesser-known, mid-level ex-officers, one in the ISI and the other R&AW.
  • On Jadhav — who was arrested in Balochistan in 2016 on charges of being an Indian spy and who has been languishing in a Pakistan jail since then — the authors write that ISI used the network of Uzair Baloch, a Karachi-based "landlord, trader, thug, local hero, robber, and philanthropist" with "deep connections into Iranian Baluchistan", to spy in the Iranian port city of Chabahar.
  • The authors quote an unnamed colonel in the external intelligence wing of ISI as saying, "The ISI waited patiently, hoping to grow Jadhav into something special and then when he was big enough, as a target, ISI would pull him in".
