Pakistani ISI agent, Abdul Kasim of Bangladesh, who was arrested in Rajasthan recently and brought to Assam after he was taken to West Bengal, had recruited an ULFA cadre from Nagaon, Prabin Das, who is currently under police custody, as the in-charge of ISI activities in Assam and the North-east. Talking to The Sentinel, IGP (SB) Khagen Sarma said that Prabin Das also recruited a number of cadres, including Hindus under a new strategy to recruit Hindus as ISI agents to work under him. Mr Sarma said that Kasim, a former soldier of the Bangladesh Army and a member of the Mukti Bahini of 1971 under Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, had come to Assam about two-and-a-half months back to carry out ISI activities in the region and expand its network. Besides Assam and the North-east, Kasim also looked after ISI activities in Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal, sources said, adding that the confessional statement of Kasim might lead to the police to arrest more ISI cadres and get more facts about the activities of the Pakistani agency.

During his confessional statement, Kasim said that he had entered India through Coochbehar-Bangladesh border bribing Indian jawans. He also said that, once an Indian jawan, who was arrested, had helped him go to Bangladesh. He said that ISI headquarters responsible for its operation for Assam and the North-east is in Bangladesh, a fact the Khaleda Zia Government in Bangladesh has been denying.
