From foiling evil terrorist plots to maintaining the secrecy of major nuclear programs, Indian intelligence agencies have always proved their mettle. RAW or Research & Analysis Wing is India’s primary foreign intelligence agency, which was formed in 1968 with Rameshwar Nath Kao as its first chief. It is touted as one of the most fearsome agencies in the sub-continent.
Let’s have a look at some of the missions undertaken by RAW which rightfully prove that it is in fact, one of the best intelligence agencies around.
