Owing to great shortage of staff in Indian Political
Service there is no Vice Consul at Zabul. Russians on the
other hand have a Consular ..gent, an Armenian secretary and
two other Russians there and their activities are causing us
concern particularly with regard to the coming provincial
and Majlis elections.
After consultation with me, Acting Consul General Meshed
is recommending to Government of India that they should appoint
Khan Bahadur Mohammed Ayub to Zabul. He was for many years
trade agent and Indian Attache' at Zahidan and in 1942 was
transferred to Meshed where he has worked under Sir C. Skrine.
Skrine has known him personally for many years and vouches
for his efficiency and complete loyalty*
It is important that Ayub should have a secret cypher
andin the light of pur letter Number Y 19/39/46 of May 10th
it is suggested he might be given access to Foreign Office M
cypher R code and Foreign Office 15 One Time Pads.
