Jaipur, October 14
An employee at the Chief Engineer’s office of the Military Engineer Service (MES) in Rajasthan’s Jodhpur has been arrested for allegedly spying for Pakistan, police said on Thursday.
About 35-year-old Gajendra Singh, a resident of Sirohi district, was in touch with a Pakistani woman through WhatsApp. Director General of Police (Intelligence) Umesh Mishra said that he was giving him information of strategic importance.
Singh is a Class IV employee and used to move files and letters and operate a photostat machine in the MES Chief Engineer’s office. Mishra said that he used to click pictures of important files on his mobile phone and share them with the Pakistani woman.
“Based on intelligence inputs about him, he (Singh) was put on surveillance and his movements were monitored. He was detained in Jodhpur and interrogated jointly by intelligence agencies,” the official said.
Mishra said Singh’s mobile phone was checked in Jaipur and after his arrest, there was evidence of obscene chats and sharing of information of strategic importance. -PTI
