Rajnath Singh asks Home Secretary to closely monitor spying case

NEW DELHI, Oct 29: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh has ordered Home Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi to closely monitor the case in which Delhi Police have arrested ISI agents spying for Pakistan in India and to report the Minister accordingly.

These spy agents have developed a big nexus in the country and have been carrying out espionage activities in India by passing defence secret documents and maps to ISI.

Intelligence sources said that their arrest has revealed that very vital documents and maps have reportedly been leaked to Pakistan intelligence agency ISI which could be dangerous for Indian security system at borders.

Seeing the gravity of the situation, the Home Ministry has ordered to increase the deployment of more battalions across Indo-Pak borders in Rajasthan as well. After increased security forces’ deployment in Kashmir creating hurdles for Pakistan backed terrorists to infiltrate into India, Pakistan has initiated its movement in Rajasthan sector along LoC, said a Home Ministry official.

Earlier also, the security forces in Rajasthan had nabbed a bird that was being used by Pak intelligence agencies to give information about Indian security deployment across Line of Control.     At the instance of persons nabbed, police have also found role of a Pakistan High Commission staffer in espionage activities to which Home Ministry had already asked to leave the country immediately.

So far the police have arrested four persons in this concern including one Farhat Khan, the Personal Assistance of Samajwadi Party MP Munabbar Saleem who used to charge Rs 10,000 to Rs 1-lakh for passing secret documents from Parliament to ISI, said the police. (UNI)
