Days after Delhi Police crime branch arrested a Border Security Force head constable and a Jammu and Kashmir resident on charges of leaking sensitive information to Pakistani spy agency Inter-Services Intelligence, a report on Wednesday claimed that the ISI used spies to get information about Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Police have found a map of the Badami Bagh Cantonment during the raids following the arrest of ISI spies.
Notably, the spies had provided this map to their Pakistan-based handler Faizal on December 06, 2014, and Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited the Badami Bagh Cantonment in Jammu and Kashmir on December 08, 2014.
The police have, however, refrained from pointing out the motive behind sharing the map.
The website says: “There may have been an attempt to carry out an explosion near the Badami Bagh cantonment and hence the details were shared to the Pakistan handler, investigators suspect.”
On Tuesday, two Jammu and Kashmir-based Army jawans, who frequently communicated with arrested ISI operative Kafaitullah Khan, are under the scanner of the Delhi Police in the espionage case and a team is being rushed to the state to carry forward the probe.
Khan and BSF head constable Abdul Rasheed were arrested last week in connection with an espionage racket being run by Pakistan’s external spy agency ISI, which used to pay them in return for confidential information.
An official privy to the investigation said Khan’s response during his interrogation raised suspicion about the jawans having shared “secret” documents with the ISI operative.
The police have recovered a few maps pertaining to the Army from the duo’s possession. It is also suspected that one of the jawans is a relative of Khan, he said.
Meanwhile, sources said the police are yet to identify the alleged source in the Pakistani High Commission in Delhi of the ISI handler, who was directly in touch with Khan and Rasheed.
