In a move that could trigger a diplomatic wrangle between India and Pakistan, the Tamil Nadu police have  included an official of the Pakistan High Commission in Colombo and another suspected Pakistan national as co-accused in the FIR against Zakir Hussain, an alleged ISI agent who was arrested recently by the Q branch police here.

Zakir Hussain, who the police allege was sent to India to collect details about establishments that the ISI wanted to target, was booked under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act and the Q branch police interrogated him. On Thursday, a senior police officer said that Amir Zubair Siddiqui, Counsellor (Visa) at the Pakistan High Commission in Colombo, Sri Lanka, has been included as the second accused in the case and another person Boss, alias Shah, has also been included as the third accused.

The Q branch plans to approach the Centre for access to question the accused Pakistanis in the case.
