“Earlier, these people were given training in India, but now Balochistan Liberation Army (BLA) trains such elements upon RAW’s directives,” told paramilitary representatives according to sources.

“The last training session was held in Sukkur, while Mangi also addressed the agents upon return from there.”

He also directed to keep in view Merchant’s dignity being a witness in the investigations of alleged RAW funding to MQM and ties with its supremo.

After Nisar’s directions, FIA Director Inam Ghani contacted Merchant on Monday and assured him of addressing his concerns. He told that Merchant is convinced to come to Pakistan to testify in the investigations against London-based MQM leadership.

It is pertinent to note here that Sarfraz Merchant is co-accused in money laundering case against MQM leaders in UK.
