The arrests comes just two days after the Gujarat ATS arrested two people in connection to a spying case. It was found that they had collected information and had passed it on to the ISI in Pakistan. Investigations also found that one of the two who were arrested had been honey trapped and also lured with money to seek out information.
Intelligence Bureau officials say that the cases of spying are on the rise ever since the surgical strikes took place. The ISI has activated almost all its networks in the border areas.
The ISI has been seeking information about troop movement. Calls are being made by impersonating Indian officers. Further the ISI agents are also tapping railways stations since information on the movement of troops can also be found out.
