Ravindra Kaushik – India’s Best Spy Ever To Penetrate The Ranks Of Pakistani Forces

India and Pakistan’s rift is known all over the world and the two countries have been involved in a number of wars since independence. There have been a number of warriors who’ve given up their lives for their country from both sides. One such name was Ravindra Kaushik. 

Ravindra Kaushik wasn’t somebody who fought at the front end. Rather, he fought the fight from a secret end. Ravindr Kaushik was a Research and Analysis Wing operative. He is famously known by the name ‘Black Tiger’ and considered India’s best ever spy to penetrate the ranks of Pakistani Armed Forces. 

Born in Sri Ganganagar in 1952, Ravindra served the Indian intelligence department from 1979 to 1983 as a spy against Pakistan. Disguised as ‘Nabi Ahmed Shakir’, Ravindra entered Pakistan in 1975 and successfully completed his LLB from Karachi University. He initially joined the Pakistan Army as a commissioned officer but soon got promoted to the ranks of a major.

He kept on passing down important information to the Indian army from 1979-1983. Ravindra was finally caught and was tortured for 2 years at Sialkot, Pakistan. The warrior was finally given a death sentence in 1985, but the Supreme Court of Pakistan commuted the sentence to a life term. In 2001, he lost life to pulmonary tuberculosis and heart disease in the Central Jail Mianwali, Punjab, Pakistan.

Interestingly, Ravindra’s family claims that the Bollywood movie ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ starring Salman Khan was based on this brave warrior of India. We have listened and watched such stories in media, movies etc. but to know one such real life story is a different experience. The Black Tiger was surely one of India’s best spies ever and deserves every single bit of recognition.
