DIBRUGARH, Feb 28 – Army intelligence, in a major break through into ISI network, has apprehended an Army officer, Captain Salim Zafar Azad in New Delhi late on Tuesday evening. Captain Salim Zafar Azad (an Army doctor) had deserted from Army on May 18 1997 when he was posted at Military Hospital in Dinjan Cantonment in the Dibrugarh district. After deserting the Army, the officer spent a few years in Bangladesh and then moved to Delhi and was reportedly overseeing one part of ISI’s operation in the national capital.
Captain Salim Zafar Azad is a son of Dr M Asadullah (alias Dr Henry) of Bairagimoth here, and was an occassional visiting doctor at the private nursing home here, Drishti Netralaya.
Acting an a tip off from Military Intelligence unit at Dinjan, military intelligence sleuths alongwith special cell of Delhi Police arrested Captain Salim Zafar Azad from a residential colony in East Delhi, an area notorious for organised crime. He was produced in court today.
Sources in military intelligence feel that interrogation of the subject will provide an insight into ISI’s nexus in India. However, the officer will first be tried by military court for his offence of desertion from active service, according to sources.
