ISLAMABAD: Pakistan summoned Indian High Commissioner Gautam Bambawale to lodge a strong protest over 'India's spying activities' in Balochistan and Karachi, Foreign Office (FO) sources said.

The commissioner was called a day after security forces claimed the arrest of a 'serving Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) officer'. The man believed to be a serving officer in the Indian Navy and a member of the Indian intelligence agency RAW was arrested during a raid in Balochistan.

The spy was linked to separatist elements in Balochistan, as well as involved in acts of sectarian terrorism and terror attacks in Karachi, a security official had said.

The RAW officer had been shifted to Islamabad for interrogation, as he was suspected of involvement in various acts of terrorism and other subversive activities in the province, the official said.

FO sources said Bambawale was summoned by Foreign Secretary Aizaz Chaudhry, who shared details of the man's arrest with the Indian High Commissioner.

Chaudhry lodged a strong protest over the RAW officer's spying activities in Balochistan and Karachi, making it clear that this was unacceptable, FO sources said.
