New Delhi, Oct 17: The ISI spy who was arrested in Gujarat last week was an Indian agent who turned rogue. Investigations have revealed that the arrested person Sakur Sumra was an informer for the Intelligence Bureau, but turned rogue after he was offered a good sum of money by the ISI in Pakistan.

Sumra was roped in by Mohammad Alana who was also arrested with him. Alana, who had visited Pakistan to meet a relative, had been honey trapped by a 17-year-old girl. After he was roped in to spy for the ISI, he decided to contact Sumra.

Investigators say that since Alana was an illiterate he roped in Sumra. Moreover Sumra was aware on how to gather information since he had been an informer for the IB.

Double Rogue Agent

Sources tell OneIndia that Sumra had been an informer for the IB. He was providing information to the IB between 2010 and 2014. However, after he came in contact with Alana he turned rogue and shifted loyalties. He had a good amount of information about the border areas in Kutch.

The duo are being questioned by the military intelligence after it had been found that information relating to the movement of troops at the border areas had been shared by them. Post the Uri attack, the duo had made several calls to Pakistan and provided vital information.

They were using Pakistan SIM cards, investigations have also revealed. The call records clearly indicate that they were in touch with their handlers in Pakistan who they refer to as Master Ashraf.

The cell phones have now been sent for forensic analysis. Investigations also suggest that the duo had made several trips to the Tharparkar district in Pakistan.
