NEW DELHI: Had it not been his cantankerous wife, Dewanchand Malik, a spy, might still have been taking the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) for a ride.
Frustrated by a messy divorce and her husband’s failure to turn up on a couple of dates at the court, Malik’s wife shot off a letter to the agency’s Aviation Research Centre agency in 2005 stating that Malik was a Bangladeshi national.
This not only exposed the case of a foreigner sneaking into a senior intelligence job, but also the threat he poses considering his knowledge of the country’s vital scientific system.
Malik had managed to join the Aviation Research Centre of India’s external intelligence by forging documents and claiming to be an Indian citizen.According to Intelligence sources, they realised that Malik faked his citizenship only after his wife alerted them. “She wrote to us,” confirmed an officer.
An intelligence official told DNA that Malik probably had an illicit affair that prompted his wife to move court.
According to sources, Malik had gone on leave immediately after his wife moved the courts for divorce in early 2005. But he disappeared as soon as his wife’s letter forced RAW into launching a hunt for him sometime in April-May.
Over the past couple of years, the Intelligence Bureau and RAW have been hunting for Malik at all possible locations. “A few months back, we almost nabbed him at his 24-Parganas district residence, but he got wind of us in the last moment,” IB sources said.
At every date of his divorce case, Raw officials land up at the court, waiting to nab him. “He hasn’t turned up at the court ever since May 2005,” sources said. However, Malik had once managed to get a stay from High Court on the divorce proceedings much after May 2005.
The RAW carried out extensive investigation on Malik in Bangladesh and collected conclusive evidence of his citizenship.
“His father is no more, but the rest of his kin are in Bangladesh,” sources added. Malik, however, had spent several years in West Bengal and had studied mostly in Kolkata.
According to RAW sources, the government has never taken up Malik’s case with the Bangladesh government officially.
