Alleged ISI spy arrested in Jaipur
A Pakistani spy allegedly working for the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) has been arrested for leaking secret, strategic information about the Indian Army to the premier intelligence service of the neighbouring country.
43-year-old B K Sinha used to work as an upper division clerk of the Army Supply Corp and was posted in the South Western Command in Jaipur. He was arrested by the special branch of Rajasthan Police on Friday.
"The accused is a resident of Karimganj in Assam and was working closely with a Nepal-based ISI agent. He joined the Army Supply Corp in Jaipur in 1995 and was posted in Siliguri from 2000 to 2011 after which he was promoted and came back to Jaipur," Additional Director General (Intelligence) DS Dinkar was quoted as saying by the media.
"Through another colleague in the Army, Sinha had met the ISI agent in Nepal. He frequented Kathmandu to share strategic information about the Army and its movement with the ISI agent," Dinkar said.
Sinha confessed to spying during interrogation under the Official Secrets Act.
