Mulayam, an ISI Agent?

The book Fulcrum of Evil ISI-CIA-Al Qaeda Nexus written by Maloy Krishna Dhar, a retired joint-director of the Intelligence Bureau has in detail narrated instances of the penetration of the KGB and CIA in the country.

Dhar writes, in the book's sixth chapter called Mission Based Operations:
“In Central-Northern India, Pakistan had achieved spectacular success in penetrating over a dozen legislators and a provincial chief minister, who had come under the scanner for maintaining questionable clandestine links"
. After BJP leaders Keshrinath Tripathi and Lalji Tandon raised this in parliament, Mulayam himself admitted that said
“He (Dhar) has not mentioned my name but I know he is referring to me.
There are several incidents which can substantiate this claim. In 1994-95 when the Intelligence Bureau (IB) informed the state government about two terrorists hiding in Nadwa College. The police records confirm that with the help of state police, IB officials raided Nadwa College hostel, where instead of police nabbing the suspects, students locked two policemen in a room. Mulayam Singh intervened and got the raid aborted helping the terrorist escape. Mulayam then transferred many officers who were involved in this.

Everyone is aware of the public support of SIMI from Mulayam. Mulayam government withdrew the case against a dozen activists of SIMI. According to police records, a case was filed at a district court in Bahraich in which the then SIMI national president Shahid Badr Falahi, along with his 12 followers, was charged of delivering an incendiary speech. Similar cases were filed at Gorakhpur and Azamgarh also. Finally, the police caught these SIMI activists in 2002. In 2006 June the government issued an order to withdraw the case against these SIMI activists.
