LAHORE: Famous Pakistani defence analyst Syed Zaid Zaman Hamid on Monday has finally revealed the details of his over three-month detention in Saudi Arabia.
Zaid Hamid wrote on his official Facebook account on Monday morning,’Saudi government arrested me because they were told by agents of Indian spy agency RAW that I am an Iranian spy.’
He further added that allegation was serious and Saudis had to do their own investigations to know the truth.
He said ‘My picture with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad and my two official visits to Iran were given to Saudis as evidence that I am an Iranian agent’.
‘Moreover, my TV program on DIN News in which I had strongly opposed sending Pakistani troops to Yemen were exploited as evidence that I work for Iranian govt. This was the trap set for me.’
