Went to Pakistan 17 times in 18 years: Arrested ISI spy Mohammad Parvez reveals to police

The authorities have revealed that Mohammed Parvez allegedly honey-trapped Indian Army soldiers through fake identity to collect confidential and strategic information and passed those to the ISI, in exchange for financial support.

The Rajasthan police have arrested Mohammad Parvez, a 42-year-old man from Delhi on Monday for allegedly spying for Pakistan’s spy agency Inter-Services Intelligence or ISI, officials said.

“He was already in judicial custody since 2017 after being arrested by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) for anti-national activities, and was now taken into custody by the state police after he was brought in for interrogation on Monday,” said Additional Director General (Intelligence) Umesh Mishra.

The officer revealed that Mohammed Parvez allegedly honey-trapped Indian Army soldiers through fake identity to collect confidential and strategic information and passed those to the ISI, in exchange for financial support.

During interrogation, Pervez revealed that he was in contact with ISI handlers and had traveled to Pakistan “17 times in the last 18 years”.

Parvez allegedly managed to get mobile sim cards on photo and copy of identity documents of people by promising them quick visa formalities at the Pakistan High Commission in Delhi. Plotting with SIM card retailers, he got the numbers activated to share information with his handlers, the officer confirmed.

Mishra confirmed that Parvez was presented before a Jaipur court, which sent him to four-day police custody.

Last year, the Rajasthan Police had arrested one Army jawan on charges of espionage in Jaisalmer. After interrogations, it was revealed that he was honey-trapped and in touch with the Pakistani ISI operatives through social media.

A few months back, an Engineer at Brahmos facility in Nagpur, Nishant Agarwal, was arrested for alleged spying and passing on sensitive information to his ISI handlers. Even then Pakistani handlers had used social media accounts to honeytrap Agarwal.

In September last year, Uttar Pradesh ATS team had arrested a BSF Jawan, Achutanand Misra, a resident of Madhya Pradesh’s Rewa district, who was ‘honey-trapped‘ by a woman claiming to be a journalist, into sharing information about India’s defence preparedness with ISI lackeys.

India and Pakistan have been on the brink of war after the Pulwama attack by Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad claimed the lives of 40 Indian soldiers.
