London: Kashmiri separatist Ghulam Nabi Fai, who has been charged with being an undeclared agent of ISI in the US, was also a director of a UK-based organisation, promoting Pakistani interest on Kashmir, a media report said.
Fai, who heads the Washington-based Kashmiri American Council (KAC) was arrested by FBI for allegedly collaborating with Pakistan's spy agency by "clandestinely" funnelling hundreds and thousands of dollars to change the view of American lawmakers on Kashmir.
Fai, 62, was also a director of the Justice Foundation based in Bloomsbury, which hosted events for British lawmakers to promote Pakistani interests on Kashmir, using millions of dollars of covert funding, the Daily Telegraph said.
"MPs hosted events in Parliament for an organistation which has been accused of being a front for Pakistani spies, it can be disclosed," it reported.
The Justice Foundation is alleged to have been promoting Pakistani interests over Kashmir, using millions of dollars of covert funding, it said. The executive director of the foundation in London is Nazir Ahmad Shawl.
The scandal follows the arrest last year of Katia Zatuliveter, a House of Commons researcher accused of being a Russian spy.
The Daily Telegraph said that Fai was also a director of the Justice Foundation based in Bloomsbury, central London, alongside three British men and two Indian nationals, one of them based in Saudi Arabia.
US prosecutors claim that three "Kashmir Centers" in Washington, London and Brussels, are run on behalf of "elements of the Pakistani government, including Pakistan's military intelligence service, the Inter-Services Intelligence Agency (ISI)."
