The Deputy Director General of Pakistan's Intelligence Bureau (IB), Ali Ahmed Sabir, has reportedly told the Standing Committee on the Cabinet Secretariat that intelligence agencies in and are looking at various options to sabotage or damage the $46 billion China-Economic Corridor (CPEC) project.

"The East Turkestan Islamic Movement (ETIM) and the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IMU) are some of the potential threats to CPEC, as the former is directed towards which is a prime stakeholder in the project," the Express Tribune quoted Sabir, as saying.

According to the Express Tribune, this is the first time that a state agency has publicly talked about a possible nexus between India's Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) and Afghanistan's National Directorate of Security (NDS) with regard to sabotaging the CPEC.

The panel has reportedly told all concerned agencies to take all possible measures to ensure the security of projects, particularly those located in the Gwadar and Gilgit-Baltistan regions.

Intelligence Bureau Director General has informed the panel that there is a shortage of manpower, but every effort will be made to prevent subversive or suspicious activities.
