February 11, 2009 16:39 IST

The Pakistani authorities have arrested three men allegedly working for the India's Research and Analysis Wing intelligence agency during a raid in the north-western Pakistan district of Abbottabad, according to a media report.

The personnel from an intelligence agency raided a hideout in Abbottabad district on Tuesday and arrested the three men identified as Muhammad Sharif, Ghulam [Images] Muhammad and Abdul Ghaffar, The News daily reported on Wednesday.

The trio had allegedly entered Pakistan through the Wagah land border.

Pictures of prominent religious leaders and maps of sensitive places were allegedly found in their possession. The men were taken to an undisclosed location for interrogation, the report said.

The reported arrests came close on the heels of the detention of three alleged RAW-trained Pakistani citizens in the eastern Punjab province of Pakistan on January 29 for allegedly spying for India.
