Pak diplomats fuelling militancy
Due to such undiplomatic activities, those countries withdrew the officials. Former Bangladeshi diplomats think the intelligence agencies should look into the matter seriously as such activities affect the country adversely. In January last year, a Pakistani official named Mohammad Mazhar Khan was caught red handed from Banani with fake currency. An intelligence report revealed that Mazhar was engaged in fake currency trading and he gave the earnings to different militant outfits including Hizb ut-Tahrir, Ansarullah Bangla Team and Jamaat-Shibir for creating anarchy. He was later released from police custody at the intervention of the Pakistan High Commission and the then first secretary of the high commission, Samina Mehtab, gave an undertaking for him. The Foreign Ministry then asked the Pakistan mission to withdraw Mazhar and he was withdrawn accordingly. Another Pakistan diplomat Fareena Arshad was asked to leave the country in December last year due to her involvement with militant activities in Bangladesh. She was under intelligence radar for one year. A member of banned outfit JMB, Idris Sheikh, gave a confessional statement at the court and mentioned that he had received money from Arshad. Detectives later said that Idris Sheikh had been working as a spy for another country. In February this year, another Pakistani official Abrar Ahmed Khan was arrested in Gulshan area for his dubious movement in the area. He was later handed over to the Pakistan mission and asked to leave the country. In August, a North Korean diplomat Han Sun Ik was asked to leave to country due to his involvement in smuggling. Officials of the National Board of Revenue found a container full of cigarettes and electrical gazettes at the Kamalapur ICD. The consignment was imported in the name of the diplomat. The NBR informed the Foreign Ministry about the matter, and the ministry later asked North Korea to withdraw him from the country. In March last year, about 27kgs of gold was recovered from another North Korean diplomat, Sun Young, who came to Dhaka from Singapore. He was later released and asked to leave the country as per the Vienna convention. When asked, former foreign secretary Faruk Ahmed Chowdhury told the Dhaka Tribune that the Pakistan was doing such type of thing with the help of people from different agencies or the police. “In my long span of diplomatic career, I had rarely seen such type of activities. Pakistan is a member of Saarc and OIC. Such type of activities is not acceptable in Bangladesh.” Former ambassador Mohiuddin Ahmed said that such type of activities are exposed when two countries have bitter relationship, and Pakistan is doing it. Mohiuddin, who is also a freedom fighter, said: “These are done to make a country weak. Our intelligence should be vigil in this regard and we must contain such activities.”
