A day after two Pakistani High Commission visa assistants in New Delhi were arrested by the Delhi Police Special Cell for alleged involvement in espionage activities, police said that officials were gathering information about the movement of Armed forces via train.
A report by the Delhi Police stated that information had been received from a central intelligence agent several months ago that a Pakistani agent, Abid, in Noida was involved in the procurement and supply of classified documents relating to the Armed Forces to his mentor based in Pakistan.
On May 31, information was received that Abid would be at Karol Bagh at 10.30am with some confidential information. A team was mobilized and at 11:45 am they saw two people, including Abid. Someone approached them and handed over an envelope. The team then captures both.
When questioned, Abid said that his name was Nasir Gotam, a resident of Geeta Colony, and showed him the Aadhaar card to support his claim. Other people identify themselves as Tahir.
They both claimed to be residents of Geeta Colony.
Confidential information about the movement and spread of the Indian Army was found from the duo.
During the interrogation, the two failed to identify where Geeta Colony was. They finally broke down and confessed.
Both were employed at the Pakistan High Commission and had reached Karol Bagh in a car belonging to the High Commission.
“Abid operates under several false identities to lure people who work in organizations and departments of his interest. He poses under the name Gotam, a brother of a media, to establish contact with someone who works on the Indian Railroad. He tried to gain his trust by pretending that he needed information about the movement of the train for his brother who was supposed to make a story about the Indian Railroad and where he was willing to pay money, “said a police officer
But the real motive was to lure and trap train employees and then obtain information about the movement of Army units and hardware through trains, the officer added.
