In a revelatory interview between retired Pakistan Military officers Major Adil Raja with Colonel Akbar Hussain, it has been uncovered that Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) operates an extensive smuggling network, involving high-ranking army officers. This network has allegedly fueled the Khalistan movement and played a key role in the formation and operation of narco-terrorism.
In the video interview, Colonel Akbar Hussain spoke to retired Pakistani military officer and YouTuber Major Adil Raja, who provided insight into the activities of the ISI. According to Raja, the ISI exploited individuals like Khalistan Commando Force (KCF) Chief Paramjit Singh Panjwad to operate drug cartels and target Punjab’s youth. The intelligence agency facilitated the smuggling of drugs into India, using terrorists like Panjwad as pawns.
Colonel Hussain explained that numerous high-ranking military personnel are complicit in this illegal drug network, which has become ingrained in the system. Such involvement reflects poorly on the battalion units and dishonours the Pakistani flag.
Raja disclosed that the ISI raises funds under the guise of black operations, which are then misappropriated or used to finance smuggling and contraband networks. He claims that Panjwad, under ISI protection, supplied illegal arms and drugs to India from across the border. The intelligence agency relied on Panjwad to escalate Khalistani separatism in Punjab and orchestrate terrorist attacks, such as the 1999 bomb blast near the Chandigarh passport office.
Panjwad, who was known as Malik Sardar Singh in Lahore, was ultimately gunned down by unidentified assailants on May 6, 2023, in Johar Town, Lahore, Pakistan. His organization, the KCF, was designated as a terrorist group by the Indian government in July 2020, following a series of bombings and murders attributed to the group.
In another major exposé, Major Adil Raja alleged that the Pakistani army employed actresses as honey traps. Pakistani actress Sajal Aly has since responded to these defamatory allegations on social media.
Last month Major Adil had accused the ISI of tracking him and attempting to hack his virtual presence.
