India's NIA investigators, questioning Pakistani spy Arun Selvarajan, 28, from Sri Lanka, on Thursday found him averse to returning home. He was running an event management firm in Chennai. “He is not telling us why he doesn’t want to go back home to Colombo,” NIA sources said, adding that their suspicion about Arun’s possible links with the LTTE could be true.
 
Over the next few days, the team will try to extract information on others involved in his clandestine operation. “We want to know how and through whom he tried to access vital defence installations, like the OTA, Coast Guard, harbour and Kalpakkam nuclear facility, and the tools used to gather the information,” sources said.
 
The NIA has also said local officials, if involved, would face action. Mobile phone records recovered from Arun revealed that he was in touch with several sex workers whom he had probably sourced to appease some of his sources. Arun was the third person arrested in Tamil Nadu for spying for Pakistan’s ISI and the second Lankan.
 
In September 2012 the state police had arrested Thameem Ansari, a Thanjavur native, in Tiruchy. In April this year, the ‘Q’ branch of the TN police arrested Sakir Hussian, a Sri Lankan, from Chennai. Arun Selvarajan was picked up by NIA officials last week after they tracked his telephone links with Ansari.
 
He was also under the surveillance of the Central financial intelligence unit because of suspicious fund transactions made to him through a bank in Moradabad, UP. (Deccanchronicle)
