The Chief Minister Punjab, Shahbaz Sharif said on Monday that Punjab Government did not play any part in releasing the CIA agent Raymond Davis and that he would have preferred resigning from his post rather than handing him over to the US authorities.

Lahore—Proving to be a “gold mine” of information, the recently released CIA contractor Raymond Davis unmasked deep rooted anti-Pakistan networks in the country leading to smashing them by the men from Counter Intelligence of security apparatus.

Sources close to those who investigated Davis, arrested on January 27 on murdering two Pakistanis in Lahore, confided to this scribe that arrest was a blessing in disguise as his startling disclosures inflicted a heavy blow to under-cover agents working against security interests of the country.

His arrest proved so important for Pakistan that over 330 US nationals engaged in “sensitive activities” have started leaving Pakistan besides exposing many other foreign agents and their local links and that was considered as a major breakthrough.

Davis, who was released on March 16 on payment of blood money, was so desperate and a broken man in the last days that he dished out very useful information leading to exposure of his local links in one-go.

According to sources, on his clues, six Americans were put under scan and some of the local connections were arrested after a long- trace. Two Americans are still untraceable. A few Europeans were put on watch- list including two agents from a powerful European State.

It was shocking to discover that several third country nationals were also in contact with foreign agents. The sources believed that Davis and his companions might have tried to bring some nationals from brotherly states into their fold.

According to sources, Davis disclosures created panic among the foreign agents and some of them are on the run or went into hiding.
