The Army will start a summary court-martial against a soldier who is accused of giving secret information about military activities along the northern borders to an ISI agent who works in the Pakistan embassy in the national capital.
“Alim Khan, who is accused of being a spy, was working as a washerman in a formation near the border with China in the field area. He is said to have given secret information to a Pakistani spy working in their embassy in New Delhi. The soldier will be tried by a summary court-martial in the next couple of days.
Security agencies caught the soldier giving secret information to a Pakistani spy named Abid Husain, also known as Naik Abid, who worked at the High Commission for the Islamic Republic of Pakistan in the national capital.
The Pakistani embassy official also gave the soldier Rs 15,000 for the information he was giving them.
Sources said that the army members’ actions happened at a very important time, when the northern enemies were trying to get aggressive on the Line of Actual Control and even the smallest bit of information could have helped the enemies.
According to the Army’s sources, the soldier only knew about small things. The Army has a “zero tolerance” policy for these kinds of actions, and it said that those who do them will get punishments that set a good example.
The soldier gave the enemy spy agency a list of documents, which included the guard duty list of the formation where he was stationed and the activities of his own formations.
The soldier also told them about the formation’s vehicles and gave them a list of where the vehicles were going because of the covid lockdown.
Sources say that the soldier also tried to find out where the satellites that watch the China border were located, but he couldn’t.
He also tried to get to the places where the surveillance radar and other equipment like it were on the China border.
In recent years, there have been a number of cases where soldiers have been lured into virtual honey traps and forced to give up information. Sources said that no honey traps or blackmailing were used to get information in this case.
