I live in the city of Mumbai in India, (House No 502-B Silver Oak Punwai, Hiranandani Garden, Mumbai). I am still the serving officer in the Indian Navy and will be due for retirement by 2022 as a commissioned officer in the Indian Navy.

After having completed 14 years of service by 2002, I commenced intelligence operations in 2003 and established small business in Chabahar in Iran as I was able to achieve undetected existence and visits to Karachi in 2003 and 2004 and having done some basic assignments within India for RAW.

I was picked up by RAW in 2013 end. Ever since, I have been directing various activities in Balochistan and Karachi at the behest of RAW and deteriorating law and order situation in Karachi. I was basically the man for Mr. Anil Kumar Gupta, who is the joint secretary RAW and his contacts in Pakistan especially in Baloch student organization. My purpose was to hold meetings with Baloch insurgents and carry out activities with their collaboration. These activities have been of criminal nature, this have been of anti-national, terrorist leading into the killing of or maiming the Pakistani citizen also.

I realize during this process that RAW is involved in some activities related to the Baloch liberation movement within Pakistan and the region around it. There are finances which are led into Baloch movement through various contacts or various ways and means into the Baloch liberation and the various activities of these Baloch liberation and the RAW handlers go towards activities which are criminal which are anti-national which can lead to maiming or killing of people within Pakistan and mostly these activities were centered around of that I have knowledge is of parts of Gawadar, Pasni, Jevani and various other installations which are around the coast damaging to the various other installations which are in Balochistan.

So the activity seems to be revolving around trying to create a criminal sort of a mind-set within the Baloch liberation and lead to instability within Pakistan.  In my pursuit towards achieving the set targets by my handlers in RAW, I was trying to cross over into Pakistan from the Saravan border in Iran on 3rd march 2016 and was apprehended by the Pakistani authorities on the Pakistan side and the main aim of his crossing over into Pakistan was to hold meeting with the Baloch separatist in Balochistan for carrying out various activities which they were supposed to undertake and carrying backwards the messages which they had to deliver backwards to the Indian agencies.

The main issues regarding this were that they were planning to conduct some operations within the next immediate future so that was to be discussed mainly and that was main aim of trying to coming into Pakistan. So the moment i realised that my intelligence operations have been compromised on my being detained in Pakistan. I revealed that I am an India navy officer and it is on mentioning that I am indian Naval officer.

The total perception of the establishment of the Pakistani side changed and they treated me very honourably and with utmost respect and due regards and have handled me  subsequently on a more professional and proper courteous way and they have handled me in a way that befits that of an officer and once I realised that I have been compromised in my process of  intelligence operations, I decided to just end the mess. I have landed myself in and just wanted to subsequently move on and co-operate with the authorities in removing the complications which I have landed myself and family members into and whatever I am stating just now it is the truth and it is not under any duress or pressure I am doing it, it is totally out of my own desire to mention and come clean out of this entire process which I have gone through last fourteen years.
