ISI may try its best to rescue Fai

world Updated: Aug 01, 2011 01:33 IST

Pakistan's ISI could try its best to rescue Ghulam Nabi Fai, accused of being on its payroll for 20 years and funnelling its cash into the US to influence lawmakers on Kashmir, feel federal prosecutors, who also claim that the Kashmiri separatist had lived "a life of lies".

Assistant US Attorney Gordon Kromberg said ISI has a wide network of supporters and agents across the globe and would try its best to rescue 62-year-old Fai, head of the Kashmiri American Council who has been put under house arrest with electronic surveillance and an unsecured bond of $100,000. "Based on the information in the complaint and to a large degree conceded by Fai after his arrest, he has been an agent of the Pakistani intelligence service for more than 20 years," he said.

The US has launched forfeiture proceedings against the Rs3 crore house of Fai on grounds of violation of money laundering rules and Foreign Agents Registration Act.
