A day after the arrest of former personal assistant of Chaudhary Munawwar Saleem, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Satypal Singh said it is extremely unfortunate that a person working under the Samajwadi Party’s Rajya Sabha MP has been nabbed for anti-national activities. He urged the intelligence agencies to catch hold of all people involved in the conspiracy against the nation irrespective of their position.

“It is very unfortunate that one person working with the honourable MP has been arrested by our security agencies. And I am sure these media reports coming in could be very serious,” he said. “I would also request the intelligence and security agencies to nab all those involved despite his or her stature,” he added.

Saleem’s personal assistant was arrested on Saturday under charges of stealing Parliament-related documents and selling them to Pakistan’s intelligence agency ISI. Farhat Khan, the police said, was part of the espionage ring run by Pakistan High Commission staffer Mehmood Akhtar who has since returned to his country.

Saleem denied any knowledge of his activities.

As per the police, Farhat had been working with four MPs since 1996, some of whom were members of parliamentary committees.

        To nab those conspiring against security and stability of India has attained paramount necessity, in fact the families whose wards join ISS or go to Syria or any such place to fight or ist terrorist groups, the entire family must be declared persona non grata for failing to inform Indan authorities for such suious or sinister activites of their own sons or daughters. There mustbe open request bythe Govt and State Govrnment to invite names of such nefarious persons, and allthos making hate India statementsincluding in Centrall por State emblies or Govt jobs, must also be strivtly dealt with similarly. India must continue as secular, but need firmly check all such non secular and anti India activities. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Suraj Parkash
