As part of its extended covert operations inside India, Bangladesh and few other nations, Pakistan spy agency Inter Service Intelligence (ISI) has recently initiated a project codenamed ‘Sherni’ under which this ferocious pro-terror organization is currently training more than three hundred females, secretly recruited from Uzbekistan, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Maldives, Lebanon, Tunisia and Egypt. According to a western intelligence source, 180-day’s training and orientation of the first batch of over three hundred females recruits, aged between 21-30 started in August this year.
Earlier, ISI was reportedly recruiting women Over Ground Works (OGW) in a bid to guard their terrorists by attacking the security forces in Jammu and Kashmir. These female recruits were helping Pakistan-patronized terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir in moving from one place to another as the presence of females were helping in dodging the eyes of the security agencies.
It may be mentioned here that, Pakistani ISI has been using hundreds of “lover boys” to lure targeted diplomat and civil military officials in India with the goal of collecting sensitive information. In 2019, Madhuri Gupta, who had served at the Indian High Commission in Islamabad, was convicted by a Delhi court for passing on sensitive information to Pakistan’s ISI and compromising national interest.
In the style of classic spy novels written by Messrs Forysth or Le Carre, Madhuri Gupta was a lone wolf who was honey-trapped by ISI and passed off information to her Pakistani handlers. She who was the Second Secretary (Press & Information) at the Indian High Commission.
Madhuri worked in the media section of India’s high commission in Pakistan’s capital. Reports suggest she was handsomely compensated for her services by ISI and had been lured in by a classic honey trap. Prior to being caught by the Indian authorities, she had been described as ‘brash and fearless’ and was looking forward to a plum diplomatic posing in London or Washington.
Madhuri Gupta worked with the Ministry of External Affairs for 27 years where her colleagues praised her ‘intellectual acuity’ and she also showed a keen interest in Sufism. She had also begun doctoral work on the Persian Sufi poet Rumi but never completed her PhD.
Prior to Pakistan, she was posted in Iraq, Liberia, Malaysia and Croatia. Her knowledge of Urdu was one of the primary reasons she was picked for her assignment. Her main job was to scan Pakistani media and make two daily dossiers interpreting the developments.
The success in trapping Indian diplomat Madhuri Gupta though had encouraged the Pakistani spy agency, now it has resorted to a newer tactics of using female recruits both a honey-traps as well as secret assassins and attackers.
According to a credible source, on completion of training and orientation course for 180 days, the ISI female recruits would be sent to several target nations, including India, Sri Lanka, Maldives and Bangladesh under various disguises and assignments. There female recruits are being given training of operating short and medium-range weapons while few of them are also becoming expert bomb-makers.
Although Pakistan is a radical Muslim nation spy agency’s female recruits are trained with consuming alcohols, extracting information through sexual seduce, eating any type of food, including pork and wear various attires including swimming costumes. Each of the female recruits will be working for the Pakistani spy agency for a period of at least 10-15 years as “field operatives” while at a later stage they may be deployed in several countries under the disguise of entrepreneur, journalist, social worker etcetera.
It may be mentioned here that, since majority of the female recruits are not from Pakistan, they will be able to penetrate into the target nations almost without any hindrance.
