Lucknow, Oct 27: An alleged spy working for Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence has been arrested from Bulandshahr district of Uttar Pradesh.
The suspected ISI agent has been identified as Sahid. He was found with maps and other confidential details about Meerut Cantonment, an official said. He is being interrogated.
Zahid belongs to state’s Khurja district and has been to Pakistan twice, the last time being in June this year.
Bulandshahr SP (City) Praveen Ranjan said electronic devices and a mobile phone seized from Zahid are being checked for further leads and evidence.
According to the police, he was using Skype and WhatsApp to pass on important information about the Indian Army and its movements to Pakistan’s intelligence agencies.
Zahid’s sister, Hashmati, has denied that her brother was a spy and has sought a fair probe into the matter.
A police officer privy to the probe told media that Zahid’s financial background was not good, but his bank account had Rs 5 lakh.
Authorities are now investigating as to who deposited that amount into Zahid’s bank account.
His laptop allegedly has a lot of details of the cantonments of Meerut, Roorkie and some other places along with detailed maps.
