Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) spy agency has an interest in certain sectors in Kerala and also in some organisations based in the state, Union Minister of State for Home Mulapally Ramachandran said on Sunday.
Ramachandran disclosed this when asked if the home ministry was aware of some Kerala based organization in the Middle East having links with the ISI.
"I will not be able to share everything that we have, but one thing that has come to our notice is that the ISI has interest in certain organisations here and also in certain sectors," Ramachandran said.
Ramachandran was in the city to attend a function at the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) campus.
On being asked about PDP leader Abdul Nasir Maudany's allegations that the Intelligence Bureau was targeting and framing him in the 2008 Bangalore bomb blast case, the minister said that statement was untrue.
"If Maudany is innocent then he need not worry at all. We are very clear that even if 100 criminals escape the rule of law, not one innocent person will be falsely implicated," Ramachandran said.
