Lucknow, Aug 24: The Uttar Pradesh Police’s ATS apprehended an ISI agent on Tuesday in a joint operation along with the Rajasthan Police’s CID wing, officials informed.
The arrested ISI agent identified as Jamaluddin is a resident of Ghazipur in east UP, and is believed to be funding other similar agents across Uttar Pradesh and other states.
According to an ATS official, he was getting continuous flow of money from the UAE and was under the radar of investigation and anti-terror agencies for some time now.

“We are currently interrogating him for more leads and he will be taken on remand on Wednesday,” an official further said.
