The Delhi Police arrested a resident of Jammu and Kashmir in the spying racket working for Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence, officials said on Saturday.
Sabar, a teacher in a government school, was arrested from Rajouri district of Jammu on Friday, joint commissioner of police (crime branch) Ravindra Yadav said.
Delhi Police have arrested others in the probe — including a BSF head constable Abdul Rasheed and his cousin Kafaitullah Khan alias Master Raja, who were held on November 26 on charges of ‘spying’ for three suspected ISI agents.
Sabar allegedly helped Khan establish contact with Munawwar Ahmad Mir, a retired Indian Army personnel arrested in Jammu and Kashmir on Friday for his role in the espionage racket.
“Mir had joined the army in 1995 and took retirement in 2011 after serving in a Rashtriya Rifles (Jammu and Kashmir Light Infantry) battalion,” Yadav said.
Police said the two accused will be brought to Delhi for further interrogation after getting transit remand from the concerned court in Jammu and Kashmir.
New Delhi has for years accused the ISI and Pakistani army of sponsoring terrorism in India and snooping on confidential information, charges that Islamabad denies.
