Indian? spy? caused blast in Pakistan?

Law-enforcement agencies in Pakistan claimed on Wednesday night to have arrested a man believed to be an Indian spy and found fake identity cards and other material in his possession. The suspect, identified as Satish Anand Shukla, is believed to have been involved in Wednesday’s bomb blast in the Bahawalpur House here.

Sources said the man was arrested after law-enforcement personnel had intercepted his cellphone calls. They said Shukla had disguised his identity. According to a TV report, Shukla had served in the Indian High Commission in the UK for three years. Senior Superintendent of Police (operations) Chaudhry Shafiq Ahmed said he had no information about the man, adding that he might have been arrested by some other law-enforcement agency.

A woman was killed and four persons were injured when a car bomb went off in a high-security residential complex for government officials in the eastern Pakistani city of Lahore on December 24.
