However, the social media handle has now been deleted.

The said Instagram profile is no longer available. Last year, it was reported that a Pakistani spy who went by the name 'Sejal', 'Neha' and 'Pooja' honeytrapped a youth named Nishant Agarwal from Nagpur's Brahmos Unit for allegedly selling defence secrets about India's missile systems to his Pakistani ISI handlers.

The army intelligence wing is tasked with the counterintelligence in the army, which also includes detecting enemy spies in military areas.
