ISI trained spy appointed to collect information about Indian Army arrested from Rajasthan

Khan had visited Pakistan last year where he got in touch with an agent of the ISI. Pakistan's intelligence agency trained Nawab and in exchange for the money asked him to collect information related to the Indian Army movement and pass it on to them

A Pakistan spy who was detained near the International border on suspicion of spying for Pakistan has been arrested after intensive interrogation by a joint team of security agencies on Tuesday, said an official.

According to the Additional Director General of Intelligence, Umesh Mishra, Nawab Khan(36), a resident of Sam area near the Indo-Pakistan border in Rajasthan’s Jaisalmer district who was involved in espionage activities and was working as a jeep driver, was detained on Sunday.

Mishra further confirmed that Nawab who shared information with his Pakistani handlers through Whatsapp in code language was in lieu of money.

Khan had visited Pakistan last year where he got in touch with an agent of the ISI. Pakistan’s intelligence agency trained Nawab and in exchange for the money asked him to collect information related to the Indian Army movement and pass it on to them.

Similarly, on January 9th, the Military Intelligence Unit of the Indian Army has arrested a man named Nirmal Rai from the Kibithu village of Arunachal Pradesh. Nirmal, who was associated with the Indian Army as a porter from the last couple of months, was charged with sharing sensitive information with the Pakistan spy agency ISI.

In fact, several such imposters have been earlier detected from within the Indian Army itself. In October last year, an Indian Army soldier of Meerut Cantonment has been caught and several others detained by the Uttar Pradesh Anti-Terror Squad on the charges of espionage activities carried out on the directions of the ISI.

In another such case, a youth named Nishant Agrawal was arrested from Nagpur’s Brahmos Unit on October 8, 2018, for allegedly sharing defence secrets about India’s missile systems to his Pakistani ISI handlers.

In fact, in 2016 the Indian government had shared that more than 46 Pakistani spies had been arrested across India between the years 2013-16. Three Pakistani spies were nabbed in 2016 for getting information from people in BSF, taking the count higher.

The continuous spurt in the espionage activities carried out in sensitive locations of strategic importance does not only raise security concerns but also throws light on the loopholes within our system.
