Arrested Pakistani spy Mehmood Akhtar, who was told to leave the country after it was found that he enjoyed diplomatic immunity, tried to pass himself off as an Indian citizen in initial stages of investigation by Delhi crime branch officials.
Akhtar produced an Aadhaar card which was issued in the name of Mehboob Rajput, son of Hasan Ali and resident of Chandni Chowk.
According to sources it was only after incriminating documents were recovered that he claimed diplomatic immunity and disclosed his true identity as an official of Pakistan High Commission.
Investigations revealed that Akhtar worked in the visa section and prior to his posting to India he had worked with the Pakistani army and the ISI.
