New Delhi: A Pakistani man, who touched down in New Delhi on Friday, informed the woman on the help desk at the Indira Gandhi International Airport that he was an ISI agent.
The self-proclaimed agent, Muhammad Ahmad Sheikh Muhammad Rafiq, also said that he didn't wish to continue, and wanted to stay in India.
Taken aback by his statement, the woman quickly informed security officials who detained him immediately and informed the central intelligence agencies.
The 38-year-old had arrived in Delhi by Air India's flight from Dubai and was further booked for Kathmandu. However, he did not take the next flight and decided to break journey and walked up to the help-desk at the airport.
During questioning, Rafiq said he was connected with the ISI but had decided to call it a day and remain in India, officials said.
He was whisked away to an undisclosed destination where he was being questioned by sleuths from various central intelligence agencies, they said, adding his claims were being verified.
