PATNA: A man suspected to be an agent of Pakistan’s Inter-State Intelligence (ISI) has been arrested on the Indo-Nepal border in Bihar, police said on Friday.

Identified as Shamim Akhtar, the man was first detained at Raxaul by jawans of Seema Sashastra Bal (SSB), who guard the porous Indo-Nepal border. The SSB jawans handed Akhtar over to the district police.

As many as 23 live cartridges, two pistols, 20 gram heroin, 18 mobile phones and five SIM cards were seized from Akhtar’s possession, said police. Akhtar was apprehended while trying to enter into Bihar from Nepal’s Birganj, said sources.

“This man, believed to be an ISI agent, was also wanted in connection with the rape of a girl in Bihar and a string of abduction cases,” said a police official, refusing to elaborate. Akhtar is being interrogated by police and SSB, he added.
