New Delhi, Mar 5: One person has been arrested after he was found to be spying inside the Bhuj Army base, Gujarat. He was arrested when the security officials found that he was shooting photographs of sensitive locations with his mobile phone. The police is investigating the matter.
The police have seized his mobile phone and are currently questioning him. Officials from the army too are part of the questioning.
The police is trying to ascertain the reason he had entered into the army base and also why he was shooting the pictures. Prima facie it appeared that he was spying inside the base to seek out sensitive information.
It may be recalled that in the year 2012 two persons had been arrested for collecting and passing sensitive information inside the same camp. Sirajuddin Ali and Mohammad Ayub were arrested and charged with espionage. It was found that they were spying for a handler who was part of the ISI, Pakistan's intelligence agency.
This incident comes just a day after the Delhi police filed a 420 page chargesheet in connection with a major espionage case in which a head constable of the BSF has also been made an accused.
The police stated in the chargesheet that these persons working for the ISI had collected sensitive information and passed it on.
The police also warned that sensitive information that was already passed on may be used against the Indian army in the near future which led to enhanced vigil by the Intelligence Bureau.
