A Pakistani security official told local daily Dawn that the Indian man who was arrested on Thursday in Balochistan has revealed that he was imparting naval fighting training to separatists in the region. The report quoted the official saying that the training was part of a larger plan to attack ports in the country. The official has also accused the man, identified as former Indian naval officer Kulbhushan Jadhav, of transporting anti-state elements from Pakistan to New Delhi for training by India's Research and Analysis Wing.

According to the daily, Jadhav has told his interrogators that he had purchased boats at the Iranian port of Chabahar to target the Pakistani ports of Karachi and Gwadar as part of a terror plot. Though Pakistani investigators believe that the accused is a member of RAW, India has held that he has no links with the country's intelligence agency. In a statement, the Indian external affairs ministry has, however, admitted that Jadhav has served in the Indian Navy in the past.

The Pakistani government has claimed to have recovered travel documents and multiple fake identities from Jadhav, establishing him as an Indian spy who entered Balochistan through Iran, holding a valid Iranian visa.
