Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) agent, Daniel, who spied on Pakistan for India now lives a miserable life, as he has to drive a rickshaw while his wife works as a maid washing dishes, to earn some livelihood, an Indian news channel Pro Punjab reported.

Daniel, who served a four-year sentence in Pakistan, was smuggled into the country in 1992 to carry out India’s dirty work.

“We used to feel very proud while working for RAW. However, I am disheartened, my agency has abandoned me,” said Daniel.


“I feel abandoned and used,” he said and hoped that if he gets some money, at least he could build a home and live a decent life, or get a job for his elder son.

Speaking to the Indian news channel, he admitted that Pakistan does not send spies in India to carry out subversive activities. Rather, India frequently sends spies over into Pakistani territory.

Daniel said that another Indian spy, Raju, is currently in Pakistan. The former RAW operative said that when he returned to India after getting caught in Pakistan, he was issued a meager Rs15,000 and fired from service. Praising the people of Pakistan, Daniel admitted that the Indian government keeps sending spies to its neighbouring country.
