    Setting up of a listening post by Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) in Jaffna of northern Sri Lanka has rattled the security establishment with agencies suspecting that the notorious spy agency might snoop on the communication lines of the Indian Navy.

    A recent report of the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), the country’s premier external intelligence agency, has warned of increased ISI activities in Jaffna in the last 3-4 months during which they have been erecting spy equipment for keeping tabs on the movement of Indian submarines, agency sources said.

    Following the RAW report, a high level meeting was held in the National Security Council (NSC) Secretariat on Tuesday to assess the threat and take counter measures to contain any damage to the strategic plans. A presentation was made by the Director General of Military Intelligence highlighting the importance of securing the communication lines of naval assets. Sources said India is likely to take up the issue with Sri Lankan authorities to check the instance of a third country using its territory to target another nation.

    China has in the past established a similar listening post in Coco Islands to keep tabs on the communication waves and ship movement in the Andamans.

    ISI’s listening post in Jaffna is close to the Indian coastline and the notorious Pakistani agency wants to listen in on all the communication of Indian submarines and those of the Visakhapatnam-based Eastern Command that boasts of Indian nuclear submarines as well INS Chakra of Russian origin in its fleet.

    Recently, the ISI had been involved in digging a tunnel along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu in its bid to infiltrate terrorists into Jammu and Kashmir that has of late exhibited signs of return of normalcy. The infamous spy agency is also suspected to be behind incidents of fire in a number of Sufi shrines in the State so as to fuel tension amongst the communities.

    The origins of hate propaganda using cyberspace in the midst of the recent violence in the North-East were also reported from Pakistan.

    Sri Lanka is a hostile nation and India has to plan its relationship accordingly.

    Rajiv Gandhi screwed the SriLanka issue and Manmohan Singh missed another golden oppurtunity. Now Pakistan is making inroads in to our backyard.
